‘No Clean Sheet Then’ ‘Here We Go Again’ Fans On Twitter Frustrated Following Latest Chelsea Team News

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has confirmed that neither Edouard Mendy nor Thiago Silva will be available to start this afternoon’s match against Southampton.

It was hoped that Mendy would be able to recover from a thigh injury he picked up on international duty but the 28-year-old needs more time to get back to full fitness, while Thiago has only just returned from international duty after playing for Brazil.

Supporters on Twitter are disappointed that two key players will be missing for the Saints game and they are worried about who will replace them in the starting line up:

The goalkeeping situation is the biggest concern. Kepa Arrizabalaga was on the bench for the Palace game but his poor recent performances may lead to Lampard picking Willy Caballero instead.

At centre-back, it will be interesting to see who replaces Silva. Andreas Christensen would be the favourite but Fikayo Tomori could also be favoured to partner Kurt Zouma.
