Chelsea coach Frank Lampard has confirmed he would be missing some key players for the Super Sunday clash against Liverpool.
Among those that would be missing in action are new acquisitions Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference at Cobham, Lampard delivered positive news on another new acquisition, Timo Werner who suffered a dead leg on his debut at Brighton.
He said: ‘Ben Chilwell is not ready for the game, and Christian Pulisic is not ready for the game,’ started Lampard when asked about their availability.
‘We’re hoping they’re training and progressing over the next week or so.
‘Hakim Ziyech is also not ready for the game, same story. Timo Werner is fit.
‘Thiago has been training with us for the last three or four days. We are just working with him on his fitness at the moment, so Liverpool will come too soon for him.’
The boss spoke further about the Brazilian defender who he has worked with for the first time in recent days and he submits that he is a quality addition to the Blues.
