Hello, and welcome to football.london’s live coverage of Frank Lampard’s press conference ahead of Chelsea’s clash against Newcastle at St. James’ Park on Saturday.
The Blues come into the weekend’s match with just one defeat in their last five Premier League matches, and now sit fourth in the table, six points clear of Manchester United in fifth.
A confident 3-0 win last time out against Burnley will offer hope for Lampard’s side against a Newcastle team struggling with form and injuries.
Steve Bruce’s side have gone four games without a win in the league, coinciding with a torrid run of injuries to key players.
You can follow everything Lampard has to say about the contest, the latest injury news and possibly some transfer updates below.
