“Lampard is trying to prove a point: These Chelsea fans react as star is left out again vs Spurs

It’s starting to look like the honeymoon period is over for Frank Lampard at Chelsea, with some fans getting a bit agitated over their poor form.

He’s gone a good job so far, and the season started with little pressure due to the transfer ban and his legendary status saw him start with a lot of credit in the bank, but that could run out as the business end of the season approaches.

That loss to Man United last week means a defeat today would see them fall out of the top four, and you know that Jose Mourinho would be delighted to show everyone he can still find a way to win this one.

Lampard’s had plenty of big calls to make for this game, especially in goal and up front, but he’s decided to keep Kepa on the bench and there’s even a start for Olivier Giroud:

While the Spanish keeper may have made some errors, it’s not like Willy Caballero is an outstanding replacement, and it seems like plenty of fans would rather see Kepa get back into the team:

It’s tough to see where Kepa goes from here, a goalkeeper’s confidence can be a fragile thing, and this has now gone beyond dropping him to prove a point.

Perhaps he will come back all guns blazing to prove a point, but it’s also easy to see his confidence being ruined and then Chelsea will have a real goalkeeping problem for the rest of the season.
