Chelsea Starting XI Prediction vs Luton Town (FA Cup 4th Round)


Blues boss Frank Lampard admits he’s worried about his team right now and it’s clear the pressure is getting to him right now. As speculation that he’ll get sacked ramps up, he unloaded on Liam Twomey, a reporter with The Athletic in his press conference today, ahead of the Sunday FA Cup clash vs Luton Town.

“At a time like this, when confidence seems to be low in the squad, and lots of players, individually, seem to be struggling, how valuable is it to have someone else around the first-team, who, like you, had a very similar winning mentality as a player and similar experience in good and bad times at the very top level?” Twomey asked (see video below)

“I think their confidence would be shot if they were to read the pieces that you write at the minute,” Lampard responded with noticeable disdain.

“I read some of them and some of the confirmation bias you always reflect on games with is almost like a social media pundit to try and get a reaction in a negative way. I read the pieces when we were doing well, as well, and they didn’t go both ways.

“I think for a journalist to be objective would be a big start because if players do read it, I’d feel like that,” he added, before then moving on to actually answering the question that he was asked.

All that said, let’s move to on who Lampard might select for his first team on Sunday.
