Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed three players will be unavailable for selection, Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match against Burnley on Saturday afternoon.

However, Marcos Alonso is recovering from a recent muscle injury and will not make it back in time for the game against Burnley while Christian Pulisic has been ruled out for a few weeks with a knock picked up prior to last weekend’s FA Cup victory over Nottingham Forest. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is also unavailable for selection.

“Christian is out for a few weeks,” said Lampard.

“He was injured in training last Saturday before Nottingham Forest.

“It’s a tendon injury in the adductor so we’ll have to see how quickly he recovers because it’s quite a nasty injury and he was in pain when it happened.

“Marcos Alonso is recovering. He trained today but he won’t be ready for tomorrow.

“Ruben [Loftus-Cheek] is still out and he’s out for a while but hopefully he’ll start getting involved in a bit of collective football, maybe with the Academy to get his eye in slightly in terms of playing because he’s at that stage now.”
