Chelsea: Release Lampard, Recall Courtois And Reshuffle The Attacking Unit

Ahead of the new season, here are a couple of things that I would do if I was Jose Mourinho and wanted to get Chelsea challenging for the Premier League next season.

The first thing I would do is look to get rid of some of the old faces in the squad. The first one I would release is Frank Lampard, as he is getting on a bit and for me Chelsea need a few more energetic midfielders to run the middle of the pitch.

Lampard has been a great servant to the Blues but there is always a time when you need to move on, and if I was in charge I would probably look to move him on.

Secondly, the frontline needs a reshuffle. For me, Lukaku is the man to spearhead the attack and not Diego Costa. The youngster has proved himself in the Premier League two seasons running now and is still just 21.

The final thing I would do, would be giving Thibaut Courtois the number 1 shirt ahead of Petr Cech. The young shot-stopper has spent the last three seasons on loan to Atletico Madrid and has been sensational, and I think he is the future of the club between the sticks.
