Amps one of 9 on the bench for Leipzig away to Berlin Union 5.00 pm KO
As an aside. This is the first time Union has been in the top flight. Fans bought tickets for those that didn't live long enough to see their team make it, and had their pictures held aloft. Lovely gesture.

On the bench again tonight and did not get on as a sub against Monchengladbach . Has he made a first team appearance yet for RB Leipzig ?
No not in the league.....will be interesting to see if this affects his situation regarding a starting place for Wales next Friday against Azerbaijan.

Substituted after 75 mins. But hardly surprising seeing a he hasn't played a lot football yet this season.

Perhaps not too surprising but Amps not in Leipzig squad for their Champions League game tonight against Benfica.

Really feel if he has not had any game time by mid December Chelsea should consider recalling him. Bench warming or worse not in squad not good for Amps or Chelsea.

It would be interesting to know if Ampadu said he'd like to go on loan, or if it was Chelsea's idea. I think it's obvious that he would have got some games under Lampard so it always was a strange choice to go to Leipzig who have a strong squad with players that are currently better than Ampadu, it would have made more sense to either stay at Chelsea or go to a mid-table Bundesliga side and not a title contender.
