Chelsea news: Double injury boost for Lampard with Man United clash fast approaching

Chelsea have been boosted by the return of Christian Pulisic ahead of their clash against Manchester United on Monday night. 

The American has not been in action since the 1-1 draw against Brighton on New Year's Day due to an injury, but has fully recovered and will be in contention. 

Frank Lampard's team has also been boosted by the return of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who played his first match since May in last week's Development clash. 

The match against Ole Gunnar's men might come too soon for the 24-year-old, but his return to fitness is a huge boost for Lampard. 

The duo's return means Lampard will have an almost fully-fit squad to choose from, with Marco Van Ginkel the only player out injured. 

The club also confirmed early in the week that youngster Billy Gilmour has been promoted to the senior squad on a permanent basis.

The two sides are battling for a top-four spot, and the outcome of the match will have a huge bearing on the direction the battle will take. 

A win for Chelsea will see them open a nine-point gap over Solskjaer's men, while a win for the visitors will see them reduced the gap on just three points. 

United will be buoyed by the fact that they have beaten the Blues twice this season, a 4-0 win in the league and a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge in the League Cup quarters.
