Chelsea were impressive last night with the 3-0 win over Rennes in the Champions League. Two Timo Werner penalties and a Tammy Abraham goal has put Frank Lampard’s side in a strong position to qualify from the group and make it into the last 16.
They top Group E on seven points with Sevilla with Rennes and Krasnodar on one point.
And former Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole thinks Lampard now has a ‘great problem’ with selection after the impressive display from Abraham.
“It’s a great problem for Frank,” Cole told BT Sport.
“All the front players are scoring and making a case, and the midfielders are getting on the ball. Tammy has given Frank something to think about.
“He kept at it and his movement was good. He didn’t do it in the first half but his goal was not easy to take.”

Cole was also impressed with how Chelsea were efficient in their performance against the French side.
“It was run-of- the-mill Champions League group game,” he said.
“If you have designs to win the competition you need to be able to comfortably beat Rennes.
“There was good composure, moving the ball from side to side and probing.”

Chelsea boss Lampard was impressed with the performance his side gave at Stamford Bridge.
“I enjoyed it tonight,” he explained.
“It shows the work we’re doing and the direction we’re going.
“We did the right things in every aspect – started well, got our goals, saw the game out well and had the chance to give others minutes later on.
“We dealt with the early part of the second half really well.
“It’s not always easy against 10 men when they’ve had a bit of time to talk and arrange themselves but we kept the ball moving in the early parts of the second half.
“The professional elements of our game were really good against good opposition.
“We couldn’t underestimate them and we saw when it was 11 versus 11 that they’re a physical, technical team but we won pretty well.”
Next up for Chelsea is a Premier League match with Sheffield United (5.30pm).
