Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has given an update on Edouard Mendy, having missed the game against Southampton.

Kepa started in place of the injured Mendy, who was unavailable after sustaining an injury while on international duty with Senegal.

Speaking after the 3-3 draw with Southampton, Lampard revealed that Mendy may be unavailable for up to two weeks.

“I was talking about Kepa before and he makes a couple of really good saves in the match,” Lampard said.

“But of course peoples’ eyes will be drawn to the second goal and I understand that because it wasn’t just Kepa who was involved in that goal. That is the unfortunate world of a goalkeeper.

“Mendy is at the minute injured and probably will be fit in the next week or two weeks and then that will be the decision for me to make about who plays.”
