Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has talked to the media ahead of Fulham clash on Saturday.
Blues boss provided team news, as well as talked about Timo Werner, Fikayo Tomori and more.
Lampard on team news:
“We’re all good. N’Golo Kante is suspended but he’s back in training tomorrow. So we’re all good.”
When asked on Timo Werner’s current form, Blues boss replied:
“The more he works with his teammates, the more he works with the Premier League, he needs time to feel how the team players. Timo hasn’t had that opportunity.
“Everybody has to be patient with the idea that we will maximise Timo’s talent in this team.”
On Fikayo Tomori’s long-term future, Lampard said:
“He absolutely has a long-term future. We will see if and when he goes out on loan. I took him on loan to Derby and he was one of the best players in the Championships.
“There is a long-term plan for Fikayo in my head and if he goes out on loan it will be to enhance his personal development and come back as a better player.”
On the upcoming west London derby against Fulham, Chelsea boss said:
“It’s a different relationship to some derbies but whenever they came they had the feeling of wanting to beat us. Without fans, it takes a slight edge off but mentally we should retain that passion of what this game means.”
