Chelsea could be without defender Andreas Christensen for the FA Cup fifth round tie against Liverpool.
Head coach Frank Lampard has confirmed that the Danish defender is a doubt for the game, after joining Tammy Abraham, N’Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic on the injured list.
Christensen played the full 90 minutes of the 2-2 draw with Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday, but Lampard has confirmed that he has now emerged as a doubt to face the league leaders in the FA Cup clash at Stamford Bridge.
Meanwhile, Lampard has given updates on several other players who have been missing for Chelsea in recent weeks.

“[Andreas] Christensen has a small issue, probably puts him out for tomorrow,” he said, speaking at his pre-match press conference .
“No returns. [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek is playing in the U23s tonight. No [Tammy] Abraham, [N’Golo] Kante, [Christian] Pulisic.”
But Lampard has spoke about his hopes for the game, as he outlined what he expects from his side up against Liverpool.
“A team that gives everything to get into the next round against a strong team,” he said.
“We have to play with a big spirit.
“We would expect them to put out a strong team. They have done well in the last year, and their defeat won’t make it any easier.”
