The luck is dead against Frank Lampard and his team right now as they have been stripped down to bare bones in the squad.

Lampard will be contemplating which formation he uses on Sunday but when it comes down to it, he might have very little choice at all.

One piece of good news however, is that long term injured star Christian Pulisic has played a game of football for the first time since the start of the new year.

Lampard has revealed that along with Ruben Loftus-Cheek, the USA international took part in a behind closed doors friendly match for Chelsea this week in order to gain match fitness.

Lampard on injuries: “Ruben, actually we just had an in-house game which Ruben and Pulisic took part in. Great to see Pulisic playing but he is short on match fitness. It is a big step forward. Ruben is trying to find match fitness.” #CFC

This is encouraging signs for all involved with Chelsea, as both players are desperately needed back playing regularly again as the season run in approaches.
