Chelsea supporters have been reacting to Frank Lampard’s team selection for the west London derby against Fulham.
The Blues have a great chance to move up to seventh place in the Premier League table with a victory over the Cottagers this evening.
Lampard’s side are looking to end a poor recent run of results, with his team winning just one of their last six league outings.
However, last weekend, Chelsea were able to comfortably beat Morecambe in the FA Cup third round, which should’ve given them some much-needed confidence for today’s Premier League clash.
The Blues come up against a Fulham side that have really started to find their feet in the top flight after a concerning start to the campaign.

The team is: Edouard Mendy, Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho, Mason Mount,Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Olivier Giroud.
Chelsea supporters have been reacting to the latest team news and they weren’t happy with Callum Hudson-Odoi not being in the team.
Hudson-Odoi could only make the bench for the Blues, despite his impressive performance in last weekend’s FA Cup win.
There was no place for Timo Werner as well, with Giroud leading the line. Kurt Zouma comes out of the team, meaning a rare start for Rudiger.
