Speaking at his pre-match news briefing on Friday afternoon at Cobham, Lampard said: “Christian trained with the Under-23s today [Friday], which will hopefully be for a short period and we’ll factor him back into our training soon but he won’t be fit [for United].

“Ruben won’t be fit for this game. He’s getting closer, training a lot and he just needs more match fitness to be in consideration but it’s great to have him nearly back.

“Tammy is still feeling the effects, we’ve had to take him out of training a couple of days this week.

“He trained today so we’re hopeful but he’ll be assessed over the weekend.”

Chelsea FC are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table as they seek Champions League qualification in Lampard’s first campaign in charge.
