Lampard is set to hand debuts to Timo Werner and Kai Havertz when Chelsea face Brighton.

The 8.15pm kick-off represents the first real chance for Blues fans to see the fruits of their summer market labour.

However, a trio of new stars will be absent in Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell and Hakim Ziyech.


Chelsea boss Lampard explained in his pre-match press conference that Ziyech is out for the opening weeks of the season with a knee issue.

Chilwell is suffering from a heel problem while Silva only landed in London this week after his switch from Paris Saint-Germain.
