Tony Cascarino believes one of Chelsea’s main shortcomings this season has stemmed from the fact Frank Lampard does not know what his best XI is.

Chelsea suffered 0-1 defeat at Newcastle United, as Isaac Hayden scored for the club in the 90+4 minute of the game.

I’m not convinced he totally knows who is his best XI,” Cascarino told the Weekend Sports Breakfast. “[Callum] Hudson-Odoi’s been in, Willian’s come in, [Christian] Pulisic’s has come in. Mason Mount has been in and out the team, Reece James has played…

“If you look at the centre-halves, he’s had [Kurt] Zouma and [Fikayo] Tomori. But [Andreas] Christensen played alongside [Antonio] Rudiger yesterday?

“There’s four centre-halves and it could be any two! And you’re not really sure that they’re his best two. And Christensen – you were not really sure if he was going to play a part at all because a couple of weeks ago Frank Lampard said he might actually go and play elsewhere. So it’s a really weird scenario where Lampard does not know his best XI.”
