Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has given a fitness update on Chelsea duo Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Leeds.
Both players were taken off in the 67th minute of the Sevilla game and Lampard has confirmed he had to take them off for precaution, as their fitness is not at the best level yet.
“They [Pulisic and Havertz] both looked great. I took them off for precaution, just to make sure,” Frank Lampard told Chelsea TV.
“Kai had bad symptoms of Covid-19 [last month] so we had to make sure he’s back and fit.
“With Christian, he had been out for a fair while. He’s gaining fitness but we also had to be careful not to give him too many minutes.”
