A Chinese court has awarded a 78-year-old American man a life sentence for espionage. John Shing-Wan Leung, a Hong Kong permanent resident, was arrested on Monday by the court in the city of Suzhou in southeast China. Frank Lampard shuffled the Chelsea starting eleven about significantly for their last home game of the season against Nottingham Forest. This comes only a week after he won his first game in the role of interim head coach, the only time his team went up in the standings during his brief stint. Injury forced the 44-year-old coach to bench N’Golo Kante, a worry given the Frenchman’s shaky season. Even though they had just scored three goals against Bournemouth in their last game, Lampard reworked the team’s offense even further. Back in the starting lineup were 18-year-old Lewis Hall, Mateo Kovacic, Raheem Sterling, Joao Felix, and Edouard Mendy in goal. Kante’s persistent injuries raise question on whether or not he will be re-signed, since it is unclear whether or not he will be able to maintain his high level of play for the duration of a full season.Other transfer choices will be keenly monitored throughout the last three games of the season. Because of his lack of playing time since October, Mendy is a serious consideration for a move. Kepa’s status as Mauricio Pochettino’s first choice for the starting position is still up in the air. Lampard made clear that these factors had no bearing on the choice of goalie.
