Christian Pulisic

Christian Pulisic was named in the starting line-up against Burnley, but was withdrawn before kick-off after suffering an injury scare in the warm up.

The American was replaced in the team by Timo Werner, who went on to score in the 3-0 win.

“He had a small sensation in his hamstring so we had to pull him out,” Lampard said after the game.

“He couldn’t play after feeling that in the warm-up so we’ll have to scan it.”

Chelsea will provide an update on Pulisic’s condition the coming days.

Kepa Arrizabalaga

The 26-year-old was left out of the squad for the Burnley game, as he continues to make progress on a shoulder injury.

“Kepa is outside as I speak and has had some progression in his shoulder injury so we’re hopeful but we’ll see with that one,” Lampard said before the game at Turf Moor.

“In terms of the rest of the squad, we don’t have any clear injuries but we do have a bit of a tired group.

“We arrived back quite late, in the early hours of this morning, so I’ll have to assess everybody today and tomorrow to see how they’ve settled down and we’ll see where we’re at.”

The Spaniard could return to the squad for the Rennes game, but Chelsea will provide an update ahead of the clash.
