Zouma, James and Werner on Chelsea’s bench at Fulham as Lampard rotates

Frank Lampard has caused some Double Gameweek 19 rotation grief with his team selection for Saturday’s trip to Fulham.

Kurt Zouma (£5.8m) and Reece James (£5.1m) are currently owned by 21.5% and 7.4% of all Fantasy Premier League managers respectively but they both find themselves on the bench at Craven Cottage.

There is more surprise about the former considering he has started 13 of the last 14 Premier League matches while James is making his return from a recent knee problem.

Instead, Lampard has gone with a central defensive pairing of Thiago Silva (£5.6m) and Antonio Rüdiger (£4.5m) while Ben Chilwell (£6.1m) and Cesar Azpilicueta (£5.6m) staff the full-back berths.

Kai Havertz (£8.2m), Timo Werner (£9.2m), Callum Hudson-Odoi (£5.7m) and Tammy Abraham (£7.2m) are also on Chelsea’s bench as Christian Pulisic (£8.2m) and Hakim Ziyech (£8.1m) flank Olivier Giroud (£6.7m).

Fulham come into this London derby without Aleksandar Mitrovic (£5.5m) so Ademola Lookman (£5.0m), Ivan Cavaleiro (£5.3m) and Bobby De Cordova-Reid (£5.3m) make up the front-three.

André-Franck Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m) and Harrison Reed (£4.4m) are in central midfield with Antonee Robinson (£4.4m) and Kenny Tete (£4.3m) in the wing-back positions either side of the back-three.

Fulham XI (3-4-3): Areola; Adarabioyo, Andersen, Aina; A Robinson, Zambo Anguissa, Reed, Tete; Lookman, Cavaleiro, De Cordova-Reid.

Chelsea XI (4-3-3): E Mendy; Chilwell, T Silva, Rüdiger, Azpilicueta; Mount, Jorginho, Kovacic; Pulisic, Giroud, Ziyech.

    Can't be an assist. Wasn't a shot, wasn't the intended destination.

  6. Top Lad Dakes. - WC/TC left

    Maybe shoulda done Son to Mount as a funding move rather than Robbo to Cancelo...

    1. Cometh The Aouar...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Hindsight eh?

    2. Kellz86
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Well I had Mount since my first WC and dropped him and Son to fund KDB when City got their second match added.

      Oh well

  7. COK3Y5MURF

    Chilwell's intended target was clearly Mount

    1. DycheDycheBaby
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Totally meant it

    2. diesel001
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      If by Mount you mean the goal.

    3. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Chilwell should have taken a shot.

    4. Duke Silver ☑
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Nah he was Areola's target though.

  8. BenDavies
    • 8 Years

    Chelsea winning and Areola owners punished for their poor decision making. Beautiful

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      11 pointer if it wasn’t for 1 reckless challenge, a great decision not rewarded

  9. Deulofail
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    I'd like that to be defined as an assist, but it's not.

    1. Deulofail
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      In general. I'm not a Chilwell owner (chose Antonio instead)

  10. Ibralicious
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Chilwell always was essential

  11. Gobigorgohome
    • 9 Years

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

  23. Free Hat
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Mount deserved that.
    The only one that keeps Chelsea really going imo.

    1. mynameisq
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      But is his guaranteed place the reason they're never that good in the first place

      1. Free Hat
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Nah. For me their best player this season.

  24. How I met your Mata
    • 5 Years

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Shot on target? Then deflected?

  25. Lukakuna
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    That will count as a Chilwell hat-trick

  26. Make United Great Again
    • 8 Years

    Areola doesn’t deserve a cleanie after that weak ass punch straight to Mount
