Frank Lampard has admitted it will be a “big challenge” for his side to challenge on all fronts this season due to a demanding fixture schedule. This campaign is a month shorter than usual due to a late start, and Lampard has joined the growing number of voices concerned by such a tight schedule.
Frank Lampard said “That’s always a big challenge for top clubs, even in normal seasons it’s demanding on a squad to play as regularly as we are. And now it’s even tighter, Hence why a lot of managers now, particularly managers in Europe, are calling for more subs in the Premier League because I know these demands can take players to places where they are in real injury risk. So there are factors around it, but I don’t want to dwell too much on that, we have to deal with what’s in front of us and we do have a pretty fit squad at the moment”
