Chelsea Injury Update For Tomorrow Match: Only One Player That Is Not Fully Fit - Lampard
Frank Lampard; Chelsea Manager has confirmed that only one player that is partially unfit for tomorrow match. He made this known when he was speaking at his pre-match press conference via video link from Cobham, just after the players had completed a light session roughly 14 hours after the final whistle had sounded on last night’s 4-0 Champions League victory in Krasnodar.
According to Lampard, only the embattled goalkeeper, Kepa that is not fully fit for tomorrow match.
Thiago Silva did not make that trip for reasons Lampard described as ‘maintenance issues’ but would be available for selection at Turf Moor this weekend.
‘Thiago is fit,’ confirmed Lampard. ‘Taking him out of the trip to Russia was more of a maintenance issue for him and I spoke to him about it.
We’re just trying to make sure we get the best out of him over the course of a season and in this schedule where we have game after game after game, it made sense [for him not to be involved] in a game which involved a lot of travelling.
‘If he had to play that game then of course he could have done but we have to put it in context of what we’ve got ahead of us. In the end it was a nice exercise with the fact we got a result and Toni Rudiger came into the team and played really well, which is the competition we need.’
Kepa Arrizabalaga also missed the game with an injury he continues to work towards recovering from.
‘Kepa is outside as I speak and has had some progression in his shoulder injury so we’re hopeful but we’ll see with that one,’ added the head coach.
‘In terms of the rest of the squad, we don’t have any clear injuries but we do have a bit of a tired group. We arrived back quite late, in the early hours of this morning, so I’ll have to assess everybody today and tomorrow to see how they’ve settled down and we’ll see where we’re at.’
