Ahead of their UEFA Super Cup clash against Liverpool, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has provided injury updates on N'Golo Kante, Willian, and Antonio Rudiger.
Kante's pre-season was cut short after a knee injury and was not deemed fit enough to start at Old Trafford, but came on as a 73rd-minute substitute against Manchester United with Lampard revealing that he picked up a fresh injury problem. Rudiger underwent surgery on a knee injury earlier this year which forced him out of last season.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of the UEFA Super Cup clash against Liverpool, Lampard provided injury updates on the trio, "Kante has a small injury and I will make a decision with that with him. Willian and Rudiger are here and they are in different stages.
"Willian is not far from fit, to put him in a high-intensity match is tough. He will be working through this week on fitness. Tomorrow he will be on the bench. Similarly with Rudiger.
"With Mason Mount, I don’t like to compare, particularly with myself, I can talk about him myself and he has a great work ethic and it’s important about how we want to play. Scoring goals he will step up levels as he develops, I’m a huge fan of his."
