Premier League start date too early for Chelsea: Frank Lampard


Chelsea supervisor Frank Lampard says beginning the brand new Premier League season on Sept. 12 is too early and his gamers run the danger of sustaining accidents given the quick turnaround between campaigns.

Chelsea path Bayern Munich 3-Zero heading into the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Saturday and even when they fail to beat the deficit Lampard’s facet could have little over a month to get better earlier than the brand new season begins.

“I am guessing we will be told when we start and that will be dependent on how we go against Bayern,” Lampard informed British media on Sunday. “It is not ideal if we carry on against Bayern – the players need to be given a break to play at the level and the quality product that the Premier League is. Even in a worst-case scenario, we don’t go through against Bayern, the 12th feels too early for me for the players to start playing again.”

Cesar Azpilicueta, Christian Pulisic, and Pedro picked up accidents throughout Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat by Arsenal within the FA Cup ultimate and Lampard fears different gamers may meet an analogous destiny.

“The players need a break. That is why we have pulled two hamstrings and had players pull out of the game before this. I would like to think the Premier League would look seriously at that,” he mentioned.
