‘He’s got a chance,’ he said. ‘We all saw the image of the tackle which made it look really bad but we are trying to get him moving today. We’ll make a call before the game.’

‘It’s a boost with N’Golo, we all know the importance of him to the team,’ added Lampard. ‘The only question is how fit he is. We have to manage him but it’s great to have him back in and around us.’
