Update: Frank Lampard confirms Kante and 2 other Chelsea players are injured

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed the Blues will be without Andreas Christensen, Reece James and N’Golo Kante for the FA Cup match with Morecambe on Sunday afternoon.

James has missed the last two games with a hamstring problem while Christensen suffered a knee injury in the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa. Kante is ruled out with a minor hamstring issue.

Lampard said: “Reece James is out for the game. He will train with us tomorrow but the game will come too early.

“Andreas Christensen and N’Golo Kante, too. Kante has a minor hamstring injury so will miss this game and is suspended for Fulham next Friday so we’ll get him right.”
