Frank Lampard picks his Dream-XI team
Frank Lampard does have all the money in the world, we’ll give you that but it’s ALL even-stevens when it comes to Fantasy Premier League (FPL).
FPL is that one pedestal where the world gets to pick their dream team and play with it alongside the Premier League. Sounds fantasy-ridden doesn’t it? Well, it is.
Moving on, so if we did give him all the FPL money in the FPL world here’s what it would look like.
His formation: 4-4-2
Frank Lampard picked this formation because has played been mentored by coaches like Fabio Capello, Roy Hodgson, Stuart Pearce in the national football team.
He has also been under the guidance of a Roberto Di Matteo all of which followed the 4-4-2 formation with impetus on the defense using a mix of attacking and defensive midfielders and 2 forward to finish the job.
His Goalkeeper: Petr Cech
This man has been one of the most celebrated football goalkeepers with 124 caps for the Czech Republic national team. He is known for his positional sense, his concentration and how he comes off his line to intercept vital opponent crosses. Lampard has played with him the longest during his tenure at Chelsea and no wonder’s Cech’s his goalkeeper pick.
His Right-back: Branislav Ivanović
Little wonder why he made it to the list. He is a beast and as a defender also plays the role of a striker whose ability to win the ball pushes the opponents center half back into defense. Sterling claims that this BIG MAN was the scariest to play against.
His Left-back: Ashley Cole
Evidently, by now you know that Lampard’s fullbacks need to have an attacking ability and make good crosses. Who better than former Chelsea-mate Ashley Cole? He was a part of the 2012 Champions League Finals too.
His 2 center-backs: Vincent Kompany and John Terry
When it comes to this position they must be anticipating the movement of incoming strikers, cutting them and not letting them make runs peacefully or at all. Kompany and Terry couldn’t have been better players. Both captains of the Manchester City and Chelsea teams respectively co-incidentally play at the same position.
His Right flank: Cristiano Ronaldo
Ronaldo’s ability with the ball is unmatched. He is strong and is a beast and is a great finisher and his drills in training and his finishing on the ground look all the same. Not to mention his 5 Ballon Dórs
His Left flank: Gareth Bale
Lampard remembers his time from all the London Derbys, playing against Gareth Bale who possesses great speed and agility while advancing towards the opposition defenders. He started off as left-back after which Spurs manager Harry Redknapp pushed him forward, literally and Gareth Bale is what he is today!
His Central Midfielders: Xavi and Iniesta
Probably the BEST mid-filed duo there is. Their combined agility, ability to win balls, ability to tackle and keep the ball in play and never stop, passing accuracy, ball-winning accuracy, juggling skills and overall control of the ball make them beasts. We’re living in the times of Spanish legends in the making!
His forwards: Didier Drogba and Lionel Messi
There is proof on camera of Drogba missing only one penalty EVER and that too in training. Not to mention he was a part and scored the winning penalty of the 2012 Champions League Trophy for Chelsea.
Messi wears the number 10 jersey for one of the best teams in the world.
