​Lampard considers shock new role for Loftus-Cheek

Frank Lampard is contemplating a different role for Ruben Loftus-Cheek in his Chelsea team.

As the 23-year-old recovers from injury, he may find himself in a different role than his previous spot in the side.

According to The Sun, Loftus-Cheek could play as a false nine when he is fully fit.

Lampard is considering giving the bulky midfielder a chance to lead the line and add a different dimension to the team's attack.

Tammy Abraham has started up front for Chelsea at the start of the season, while Olivier Giroud has not shown the best form either.
