'We've played one game!' - Lampard still finding best fit for Chelsea signings Werner and Havertz


Kai Havertz Chelsea

Frank Lampard says he is still trying to determine the best way to set up his Chelsea attack thanks to the versatility of new signings Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.

Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham and fellow new signing Hakim Ziyech will also be battling for spots in attacking positions, giving Lampard several different options to go with in his starting XI.

Although Pulisic remains out of action for this weekend's game against champions Liverpool, Lampard's selections will continue to be a talking point as he continues to determine his best attacking unit.

That discussion is further complicated by the fact that Werner and Havertz, in particular, can be moved across the front line, with the former playing as a striker as well as on the wing with the latter playing out wide and centrally as either an attacking midfielder or a false nine at times with Bayer Leverkusen.

Lampard says it will take more than just one game to determine where the duo fit in with Chelsea's plans.

"We've played one game. It's hard. They both have the flexibility in which they played at their previous clubs," Lampard said at a press conference ahead of this weekend's clash with the Reds.

"Kai Havertz played most of his games on the right wing, a No10 and occasionally as a No9,a No8 earlier in his career. Timo Werner has played on the left wing, one of two strikers and as the sole striker for both country and club.

"Of course that will be something that remains slightly flexible. Trying to find the balance of the team as a whole. They are going to add a lot no matter what position they play."

Werner shone in his first Premier League match, repeatedly getting in behind the Brighton defence while also drawing a penalty for Jorginho's game-opening goal. Havertz, meanwhile, had aquieter debut, featuring for 80 minutes before the introduction of Callum Hudson-Odoi.
