Frank Lampard says Chelsea hasn’t any fresh injury concerns prior to their trip to face Manchester United within the Premier League this weekend.
The London side is looking to create a mixed start to the new season which has seen them win just twice within the league with dropped points in 3-3 draws against West Brom and Southampton, moreover as a 2-0 defeat reception to Liverpool.
Chelsea is winless in their last seven Premier League away matches against United (D4 L3); their longest run without a top-flight win at Old Trafford since a 16-game streak which led to January 1957.
Lampard is keen for his side to create a bearing this weekend and he confirmed there are not any fresh injury concerns for Chelsea, although emergency goalkeeper Petr Cech won’t feature.
“Yeah both are fine,” Lampard said of Thiago Silva and Christian Pulisic at his pre-match conference. “We’ve got a reasonably clean bill of health on its side apart from Kepa who incorporates a shoulder issue, so won’t travel Manchester. the sole other player out is Billy Gilmour which is long-term, but he is back soon. Petr Cech isn’t coming, no. Not in this capacity you’re gaining access to.”
United are themselves hopeful Edinson Cavani, Harry Maguire, and Mason Greenwood will all be fit the matchday squad after the trio omitted on the midweek convince Paris Saint-Germain.
