Chelsea duo Cesar Azpilicueta and Christian Pulisic picked up injuries in Chelsea’s FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal and there had been doubts both players will be unavailable for Monday’s Premier League game against Brighton.
In his pre-match press conference on Thursday, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard gave an injury update on both players.
According to Lampard, the duo are in contention to feature against Brighton on Monday having returned to full training this week.
Lampard said: “I am very happy to welcome them both back. Yesterday was their first day fully training with the team, so they’re in contention for Monday.
“I have to be careful and I have a squad to pick from but the way they’re training and their attitude to come back, it looks like they’re over those injuries. I just have to make sure I manage them both back in their own ways.”
