    Frank Lampard calls for Premier League early kick-offs to be SCRAPPED

    ‘Does that 12.30pm slot need to be there?’: Frank Lampard calls for Premier League early kick-offs to be SCRAPPED with no ‘common sense’ in the scheduling… as he faces a trip to Newcastle with his players unprepared

    • In-form Chelsea play Newcastle at St James’ Park in Saturday’s early kick-off  
    • Christian Pulisic is not fit for game and some players only arrived on Thursday
    • Frank Lampard criticised lack of common sense in scheduling early fixtures 
    • Lampard also praised Mason Mount for his development with club and country 

    Frank Lampard has called for early Premier League kick-offs on a Saturday to be scrapped. 

    The Chelsea manager hit out a lack of common sense in the scheduling with his side facing Newcastle at 12:30pm on Saturday having had scant time to prepare after the international break.

    He said: ‘No it’s not the best. When you look at the scheduling it is a common sense factor. That 12.30pm slot, how often does it need to be there? 

    Frank Lampard hit out at the Premier League scheduling and called for early kick-offs to go

    ‘It’s absolutely not the optimum way to have players preparing for a Premier League game. You want the best of the brand. I want us to play to our best but it is very difficult circumstances.’  

    With players extremely fatigued from a hectic schedule and lack of full pre-season, injuries are on the rise and Lampard believes changes have to be made. 

    He went on: ‘The injuries are going up across the Premier League, the numbers are there, it is clear that the correlation of games, zero pre-season, a tight schedule. 

    ‘Change the time, it is not that difficult. We have to continue to look at the best way to change it.’
