Pat Nevin believes that Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be keen to try a new attacking combination after the international break.

The Blues now have a plethora of attacking options at their disposal, but they have been without talisman Christian Pulisic at the beginning of this campaign.

Pulisic, 22, is a superb left-winger that was beginning to light up the Premier League before his injury at the back-end of last season and many consider him to now be the standout individual at the club.

He marked his return with a late cameo appearance in the recent league victory against Crystal Palace and supporters can be excited about his return when club football resumes.

Nevin has predicted that the manager will want to see Pulisic used in a combination with new teammates Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.

The duo have been regulars in the Chelsea side since joining in the summer and they are currently both away with Germany on international duty.

“There is the hope the attacking three of Pulisic, Werner and Havertz will get a real chance to finally play together, possibly behind either Tammy or Olivier Giroud,” Nevin told the club’s official website.

“They were on the field together at the end of the Palace game but there wasn’t enough time to see how well it would really work. I have a suspicion it is something Frank will be keen to try and also give it a little time to gel over a few games.

“Normally he would have done this in pre-season, but in that there wasn’t one and none of them were fully fit at the time anyway, it was impossible.”

Pulisic’s return to the side will surely see him retain his role on the wide left when he’s fit enough to start, which is when it’ll be interesting to see how Lampard builds his best XI.

Werner is a rapid forward that can play anywhere across the frontline, but perhaps his long-term role will be through the centre.

The 24-year-old has managed his first Chelsea goal in a Carabao Cup fixture, but he’s still waiting to notch in the league and has only given a glimpse of the player he proved he was at RB Leipzig.

Meanwhile, 21-year-old Havertz is a versatile attacker that can play wide right, but seems to look a real danger in a number 10 playmaker role linking everything together in the final third.

Chelsea certainly have three incredibly exciting youngsters available to them in Pulisic, Werner and Havertz, which is a combination that could wreck havoc on defences if it clicks.
