Lampard facing selection headache ahead of Watford tie

Frank Lampard will have a selection headache when his side takes on Watford in an English Premier League match on Saturday evening.

The former midfielder has a host of young attacking players at his disposal and will be spoilt for choice when they visit bottom-placed Watford at Vicarage Road.

Christian Pulisic's hat-trick last week in his first start in the League makes it even worse for Lampard, who has gotten the team playing well at the highest level. 

In addition to Pulisic, there is the returning Hudson-Odoi, who has shown signs of getting back to his former self, as well as the experienced Willian & Pedro.

Pulisic was rewarded for his match-winning performance last week with a start against Manchester United in midweek, while Hudson-Odoi dropped to the bench. 

Pedro was a second-half introduction in midweek and going by the levels of competition in the side, he might not get the starting role on Saturday. 

Speaking ahead of the tie, Lampard welcomed the selection headache, adding that it will force everyone to perform at the highest level. 

The team will, however, miss the services of Antonio Rudiger, N'Golo Kante, Andreas Christensen, and Ross Barkley, who failed to recover in time for the clash. 

Chelsea travel to Vicarage Road hoping to bounce back after Manchester United ended their seven-match unbeaten run on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup.
