‘Why can’t Lampard play him’ – These Chelsea fans react to lineup for Ajax clash

Some Chelsea fans are slightly disappointed with Frank Lampard’s lineup for tonight’s Champions League clash with Ajax. Is this really the best lineup the Blues can pick right now?

Lampard has made just one change to the team that started Chelsea’s victory against Ajax two weeks ago, with American ace Christian Pulisic brought into the fold in place of Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The Blues were victorious when the two sides recently met, with the west London club managing to pull off a 1-0 win in a tightly-contested encounter.

Check out Chelsea’s lineup below:

Here’s how some fans reacted to the Blues’ teamsheet:

Some supporters have questioned the decision to start Marcos Alonso at left-back ahead of Emerson, but the Italian has only just returned from injury, so Lampard has probably made a sensibly cautious decision there.

Other fans called for promising ace Reece James to be handed a start in Europe, however you can’t really fault Lampard for favouring experience at the back on this occasion.

CFC have the perfect opportunity to solidify their position at the top of their group in the Champions League with a victory against the Dutch giants.
