Frank Lampard urges Reece James to learn from his England red card
Frank Lampard says he has been there himself - both as a player and a manager - but that James has to learn how to keep his head after disappointing results. The 20-year-old is set to face Southampton on Saturday in the Premier League’s first pay-per-view match, while Kepa Arrizabalaga could also return in goal.
Christian Pulisic has been sent for a scan after feeling his hamstring in the warm-up, which saw him taken out of the starting XI at Burnley.
It is a potentially significant blow to the Blues, with the 22-year-old having previously missed large chunks of the 2019-20 campaign with muscular issues.
Pulisic was also forced off in the FA Cup final against Arsenal after a hamstring injury.
Thankfully for Frank Lampard, Timo Werner replaced Pulisic in the team, and was among the scorers as Chelsea ran out 3-0 winners over Burnley at Turf Moor.

On his American winger, who scored against Krasnodar on Wednesday, Lampard said: ‘We’ll have to scan. He’s frustrated because he’s worked so hard to get fit. He comes on in midweek and scores.’

‘We’re not at the end of the road, but the clean sheets are a great sign of the spine in this time. We were positive on the ball. We won’t jump up and down about this result.’
