“Mendy won’t be fit for the match tomorrow, we hope it won’t be too long,” Lampard confirmed.
There were also injury worries ahead of the match for Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and N’Golo Kante, and Lampard also stated the latest with those players.
“Thiago Silva after his trip is not ready to play because of the travelling. Chilwell is in the squad. He has got over some of the feeling he had in the squad.
“Pulisic and Ziyech are in the squad. Ziyech not it to start, but hopefully to get some minutes.”
