Chelsea will start the new year with a home game against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on January 3.

There have been a lot of controversy surrounding that game, with City’s most recent game against Everton on Monday, postponed due to Covid-19 cases within the squad.

However, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed that he expects the game on Sunday to go on as planned.

“I’ve not been given the chances of the game being postponed but I’m aware of the situation and at the moment the game is on,” Lampard said in his press conference.

“We know that Manchester City had some positives within their training ground. We have had a couple ourselves but not on the playing staff and that’s the current situation.”
