Lampard prepares new plans with help of analyst team ahead of Premier League restart

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said he has been reflecting on previous games and thinking about new plans with the help of the club’s analyst team.

The convincing 4-0 Premier League win over Everton on March 8 was Chelsea’s last game before the global pandemic brought football competitions across the globe to a halt.

Lampard has been back in Cobham to lead the training in small groups in the past few days.

But prior to that, the Chelsea boss had some time to reformulate his tactics and training programmes during the lock-down period.

Lampard told Chelsea’s official website: “I have watched a lot of games back from this season, focusing on particular parts of the team that I always want to improve.

“Sometimes when you have game after game you can’t reflect, you’re always looking forward, but I’ve had time to do that.

“We have got a really good analyst team and we can put together some videos and ideas for the future.

“That helps me with my planning, how we are going to train, how it’s going to look, and use the time as well as I can to make us better when we come back to where we’re playing.”

As things stand, Chelsea occupy fourth place, with a three-point cushion over Manchester United.

And with the injured stars mostly close to full recovery, a new plan that utilises players such as Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Christian Pulisic and N’Golo Kante who were out due to injuries might come handy to once the Premier League restarts.
