Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard has defended Premier League players over reservations they may have regarding a possible return to training and demanded improved communication.

Premier League clubs will vote on Monday over whether a first phase of training can resume, which would see players maintaining social distancing guidelines in small groups, in accordance with government restrictions to avoid the spread of the coronavirus.

Watford captain Troy Deeney and West Ham skipper Mark Noble have been among a group of players to speak out, demanding guarantees over player safety ahead of a restart.

“Everyone will handle those situations differently,” Lampard told Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp.
