Frank Lampard's recent injury updates on injured Chelsea players involving Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Christian Pulisic, Marco van Ginkel and N’Golo Kante.Ruben Loftus-Cheek:The midfielder is yet to kick a ball under Frank Lampard following the injury he sustained prior to the Europa League finals against Arsenal last season.He ruptured Achilles' tendon an injury that has kept him out since last season up to this point in the new season.The midfielder is working on his recovery and in his words, he said "It’s going well!" he told Versus earlier in the season when asked about his recovery. "It’s been a long time and I’ve had a few setbacks as well. It’s never been just a straight path but I’m close now…I’ve been running and moving, I feel I’m right on the edge. I’m close and I can’t wait."Though Lampard gave a different view about what Loftus-Cheek said, he confirmed the injury is not going as fast as the club hoped.There is still no set return date for the England international, although Lampard has given a further update."He is hopefully going to start getting involved in a bit of football," he said ahead of the Burnley match."Not just individual football, but collective football, maybe with the academy to get his eye in slightly with playing. He is at that stage now but that's not on the horizon in the short term."
