Frank Lampard provides injury updates on Chelsea trio ahead of Leicester City clash

Frank Lampard will be looking for his first win as Chelsea manager when they take on Leicester City and has provided injury updates on Callum Hudson-Odoi, Antonio Rudiger and Willian.

Rudiger has been sidelined since April with a knee problem he picked up in the Manchester United game, whilst Brazil international Willian is recovering from an injury suffered during this summer’s Copa America. Hudson-Odoi is coming back from an awful injury when he ruptured his Achilles' tendon towards the back-end of last season against Burnley.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of the Leicester clash, Lampard provided injury updates on the trio, "He (Hudson-Odoi) is getting closer, he has trained over the last week or two with the Under-23s, there is going to be a period of conditioning work for him.

"The injury looks good which is great news. Then he is going to have to be fitter than he has ever been because I want him to run. Rudiger is training. Whether he is completely match fit is another thing, for the same reason as Callum. A bit of "condition. Same thing as Willian, Willian is probably closer. They are both in contention for the weekend."
