Chelsea’s boss is unhappy about Premier League’s schedule.
will face Newcastle United on Saturday and he thinks the tight schedule will put his players in danger.
"The majority of our squad have been travelling. Some are travelling just now, just landed now, they will travel again to fly up to Newcastle, they'll travel back from Newcastle, they'll fly to Rennes on Monday and they'll fly back from Rennes," Lampard said.
"When you look at the scheduling, for me it's just a common sense factor of the broadcasters have never had as many slots as they have now. That 12:30 slot, how much does it need to be there?"
"It's absolutely not the optimum way to have players preparing for a Premier League game, which is an incredible brand all around the world.
"You want the best of the brand and it's very difficult for us to prepare for this game anywhere near where we are preparing to our best. I want us to play to our best but it's very difficult circumstances."
"I don't want anyone to cry their eyes out for players because we know how lucky we are to do this job," he said.
"But everywhere else in Europe, and the world it seems, have five subs and we at the moment don't and we have to revisit that in my opinion."
