Rank #2: Chelsea Premier League preview: Andres Eduardo explains Lampard-ball, Pulisic's role, and the potential upside of the CFC transfer ban

Podcast cover
Read more

Daryl is joined by Andres Eduardo of the Roman's Empire podcast to preview Chelsea's 2019-20 season.

We cover the entire team from front to back, get into the details of Lampard's playing style, explain where Christian Pulisic fits into the system and why he might succeed, get excited about Ross Barkley running at defenders, and try to figure out which of the three available strikers Chelsea will field.

Andres also makes a compelling case for why the transfer ban may result in a change of approach at Chelsea which could see the club finally play the kids, and transform CFC from Premier League villains to heroes.
