The bulk of the Chelsea squad took part in training ahead of the Southampton clash.
Chelsea play host to Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, and for Frank Lampard and Chelsea, it’s definitely a must win game.
Lampard has an almost complete squad to choose from, with Edouard Mendy not available due to the injury he suffered while on international duty with Senegal.
Thiago Silva will miss the game against Southampton despite being fit, Frank Lampard has confirmed, due to his long travel to Brazil.
Lampard said of Silva: “Thiago Silva after his trip [with the Brazil national team], is not in the squad. He’s not unfit but he’s not ready to play in the weekend’s game due to the travelling he’s done.”
Lampard didn’t say anything about N’Golo Kante who did not feature for France due to injury. But the World Cup winner took part in Chelsea’s trainings sessions.
