Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is happy with the current state of his squad, as he has revealed that the entire squad is fit ahead of facing Leeds United at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
“Everyone is fit,” Lampard told the media.
Lampard also revealed that he is pleased with the competition in his side, especially with how Olivier Giroud performed against Sevilla on Wednesday.
“With Giroud, it’s not a case of giving any player assurances over game time because with a competitive squad like ours, that’s very difficult to do.
“All you want is for players, when they’re out of the team, to train well, get themselves in the team and perform like Oli did the other day because then that gives me nice problems. I’m happy with him – his form is good and he’s training well.”
Lampard had also given update on Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic, whom he took off in the 67th minute against Sevilla.
“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.”
