Chelsea News: Lampard provides latest update ahead of Burnley clash

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has now new injury worries ahead of Saturday's Premier League match against Burnley. 

The Blues registered an impressive 4-0 away to Russian side Krasnodar in their second Champions League match of the season on Wednesday night, moving to the top of their group. 

Speaking after a light session at the club's training grounds on Thursday, Lampard revealed the entire team is available for the weekend's match. 

"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,"

He also highlighted Thiago Silva's absence from the team for the Wednesday night clash.

"Thiago is fit," confirmed Lampard. "Taking him out of the trip to Russia was more of a maintenance issue for him and I spoke to him about it,"

"We’re just trying to make sure we get the best out of him over the course of a season and in this schedule where we have game after game after game, it made sense [for him not to be involved] in a game which involved a lot of travelling.

Lampard and company head to Turf Moor on Saturday evening for yet another English Premier League match, hoping to pick another positive result on the road following their 0-0 draw away to Man United last time out.
