It was a Champions League night to savour for Chelsea as they won 1-0 away against Ajax in Amsterdam last night (Wednesday).
Michy Batshuayi’s goal claimed all three points for the Blues as Frank Lampard’s men moved to the top of Group H, with the Belgian striker finishing off the pass from fellow substitute Christian Pulisic to clinch the victory.
The impact from the bench has given Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard food for thought when it comes to his team selection for the return to Premier League action this weekend, with the Blues travelling to face Burnley at Turf Moor.
However, there is one change I would make and that is bringing in Christian Pulisic in place of Mason Mount.
Meanwhile, Pulisic has made a real impact every time that he has been brought on by Lampard and deserves his chance to start.
There’s a fair argument that Burnley away might not be the perfect game for Pulisic to start, but Mount being rested could be key for the next couple of games and getting his form back.
Apart from that, Lampard shouldn’t be in any hurry to change things up and keep the consistency that has now started to build for the Blues.
(4-2-3-1) Kepa; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Tomori, Alonso; Jorginho, Kovacic; Willian, Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi; Abraham.
