While Chelsea will start the new season with new hopes under Frank Lampard, some players are definitely going to find it tough to play regular football.

Chelsea are set for a new era with Frank Lampard as coach. The Englishman is going to give everyone a chance to impress but there are some who would struggle.

Even though the club has a transfer ban, Lampard might not be too patient with a few players.

Danny Drinkwater

A few years ago, Drinkwater was lifting the Premier League with Leicester City. His displays earned him a move to Chelsea. However, things haven’t worked out for the former Manchester United man.

Struggling for form and consistency, Drinkwater is likely to struggle to justify a place in the starting XI. A move away from Stamford Bridge remains unlikely so the midfielder has to settle for a pointless role at the club.
