Lampard delivers injury update ahead of Manchester United
The boss was pleased to report a ‘pretty clean bill of health’ for the trip, with Kepa the only recent addition to the injury list because of a shoulder problem. Lampard confirmed Petr Cech will not be involved in a playing capacity, with Billy Gilmour the only other absentee.
Man United’s last home game was a 6-1 defeat to Tottenham, but they have since responded with two wins, most impressively away to Paris Saint-German in midweek. It was put to Lampard their recent results have summed up the unpredictable nature of the campaign so far.
‘We can talk about certain games where big teams have conceded a lot of goals, or there have been big turnarounds in games, but I’m not interested in that,’ said Lampard.
‘Man United are a very good team, we played them enough last year to know that, and I’m not concerned with what might have happened in games before.
‘There’s been an uncertainty within life and the game which has brought about the unpredictability we have seen in the early stage of the season, but we only have to focus on ourselves.
‘We have belief in this squad. We will see how things level out as the season goes on. I don’t want to predict how it might look like when we are this early into the season.’
