Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic to start for Chelsea as Frank Lampard’s starting 11 against Southampton is predicted

After the international break, the football attention shifts to English Premier League as Chelsea will meet Southampton as the new season continues.

Football competition is on international duties for now but is expected to round everything up before Monday and return to their respective leagues across the globe.

English Premier League is getting tougher now as managers and players are looking to salvage their clubs and jobs as well. Merely into the game, some big teams are already struggling for survival, Chelsea might be included in this list as our expectations are not yet met considering their business in the transfer market.

First of all, Chelsea as a club is a professional football team based in Fulham, London, England, and competes in the top division of football in England. Highly regarded as one of the most successful clubs in England in the last few years. Under Frank Lampard as the head coach and the signing of highly-rated footballers, Chelsea has not been living up to the expectations but with the return of some of their key players such as Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic, everything is believed to fall in place. Ziyech came on as a substitute in Morocco vs Senega on international duty and provided as assistance to help defeat Senegal2_0 while new Goalkeeper Eduard Mendy got injured just before the game and is flown back to London for proper medication.

their game against Southampton cones up on the 17th of October, just after the international duty, Lampard is expected to use this starting lineup to face them and hopefully get all the three points from the game.

This is an important game between both Ole Gunner and Frank Lampard and at such Lampard should not gamble with team selection. I opted Havertz and Timo Werner in the starting lineup because they might not perform well in this game so should come in as a substitute when the game is almost done and dusted.
