Blues - Lampard´s fine

Published Add your comment

Chelsea have scotched speculation that England midfielder Frank Lampard is set to miss the start of the season with a broken toe.

Lampard has featured in all Chelsea´s pre-season matches despite suffering a minor injury, not missed a single training session since collecting the knock and is set to play a major part in Sunday´s FA Community Shield showdown with Manchester United.

"Contrary to speculation, Frank Lampard has only suffered a minor injury - sustained over three weeks ago whilst training in Los Angeles," a Chelsea statement read. "The injury has not required any pain-killing injections nor affected Frank´s ability to play or to take part in any one of Chelsea´s training sessions."
