While his agent Rubie quote-tweeted it saying:

"How many clean sheets is that for you Rudi when you've started for @ChelseaFC this season in all comps? Asking for a friend. Thanks."

The German had made only four Premier League appearances this season, prior to Thomas Tuchel's arrival this week.

Rudiger made only four Premier League appearances under Lampard before he was sacked in the past week.

The centre-back played in Chelsea's 2-0 win over Newcastle, the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa as well as the 2-0 loss to Leicester City and 1-0 win over Fulham.

The German gaffer made several changes to the starting XI as Marcos Alonso returned to the squad since October.

Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz, Kourt Zouma and Ben Chilwell were all left on the bench for the encounter.

Legit.ng also reported that Chelsea supporters hung a banner outside one of the entrance gates at Stamford Bridge to show their frustrations about Frank Lampard's sacking, Daily Mail.

Thomas Tuchel replaced the English boss after 18months in charge of the Blues which did not sit well with fans as the banner reads 'circus continues'.

The German manager's first game for the Blues ended in a 0-0 scoreline against Wolves who defeated the team by 2-1 while Lampard was in charge.
