3 Chelsea Players That Have A Point To Prove Against Frank Lampard On Sunday



Chelsea will travel to Goodison Park on Sunday to take Everton in a league game. The League game is crucial to both sides as Chelsea looks to take a step closer into sealing a top four spot on the English Premier League table this season while Frank Lampard and his Everton Squad are battling to avoid the drop from the English top-flight League this season.

The reunion of Frank Lampard with Chelsea is another reason why the game is highly anticipated. Taking the top job at Everton was Frank Lampard’s first job since Chelsea fired him in January 2021. The Chelsea all-time highest Goalscorer had to go into hiatus of one year before he returned to management in January.

However, the game isn’t just about Frank Lampard playing against the club that gave him his prolific career or playing against a Club that fired him, it could also get personal for some Chelsea Players who might be looking to prove a point to Frank Lampard and do further damage to the Toffees’ slim hope of avoiding Relegation this season.

During Frank Lampard’s 18 months reign at Chelsea, he didn’t have a smooth relationship with a lot of Chelsea Players including Marcos Alonso, Jorginho and Antonio Rudiger.

Frank Lampard had literally froze Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso out of the squad. Antonio Rudiger was already pushing for an exit in January over lack of playing time until Thomas Tuchel came in. The same thing was about Marcos Alonso who Frank Lampard had also turned to an outcast.

Rudiger eventually turned to one of the greatest Defenders in Europe after Frank Lampard was sacked while Marcos Alonso has also stepped up for Chelsea on multiple occasions under Thomas Tuchel. For Jorginho, he has gone ahead to win the UEFA Player of the year award.

These three Players have obviously done well for themselves at Chelsea after Frank Lampard’s exit but they could add more salt to the injury of Frank Lampard and Everton on Sunday.
