Mixed injury news on Chelsea wingers for Man City clash

Mixed injury news on Chelsea wingers for Man City clash”

Mourinho, who returned to management with Chelsea's rivals Tottenham Hotspur this week, could not hide his frustration when Lampard scored against his team for City, saying: "When he made a decision to become a direct competitor of Chelsea, then love stories are over".

Mauricio Pochettino's shock Spurs exit this week gave ex-Porto, Chelsea and Inter boss Mourinho an unexpected route back to the Premier League and it is one Guardiola expects him to grasp with both hands.

However, Lampard, who spent the bulk of his playing career at Stamford Bridge before taking over as head coach this summer, is adamant his deep ties to the club would prevent a repeat. "I would say that when you know the club it is a good advantage and Lampard knows Chelsea perfectly and everything behind the scenes - media, fans, players - so that is good".

"I think it is good for English football". Jose Mourinho has worked at a lot of football clubs and we have to respect his right to work.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola praised the impact of Frank Lampard at Chelsea ahead of his side's meeting with the in-form Blues this weekend.

Chelsea meet City on Saturday evening.

"I think it happened".

"I still see them as the same strength and understand what they have and what they can do to teams".

But fellow winger Christian Pulisic is available despite not going on global duty with the US last week.

"[Pulisic] had a problem going into the last game against Palace and he was struggling, hence why he came off after his goal", Lampard said.

But Hudson-Odoi has a hamstring problem he sustained while away with England. "It is the best way to get better for the national team and the club itself". He has trained again this midweek.
