Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has confirmed Willy Caballero will start against Hull City in the FA Cup fourth-round tie on Saturday.
The Blues will make the trip to Hull for the first time in three years and are favorites to sail through against the Championship side.
Speaking on Friday during his press conference, Lampard revealed Caballero will start, while also defending under-pressure Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The Spaniard has been the topic of discussion in recent weeks and was worsened on Tuesday night against Arsenal in the Premier League.
"The good news is he hasn’t fractured anything," reported Lampard. "We were worried about a small fracture or a hairline fracture. He hasn’t got that. We have to see how it develops. It’s not a clear-cut one.
"He’s not fit for this weekend. Whether he will be fit for Leicester after that I’m still not sure. I haven’t got the news for you. It’s not clear at the moment," he went on.
The former midfielder took time to also express his pleasure in the deal with Three UK, a connectivity firm, that will be the official sponsors of the club from next season.
"It’s a big deal for us to link up with Three," Lampard said.
"They’re leaders in their field, a great brand. I’m certainly very happy with it, and as a club, we’re very happy with it. They’re leaders in 5G so it is very exciting for us as a club to be involved with them going forward.
‘We look forward to it.’
