Frank Lampard has potentially given Liverpool fans some good news ahead of their upcoming Premier League clash on Sunday.
In his recent press conference (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), the Chelsea boss has confirmed that new recruits Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Hakim Ziyech will not be available for selection. Christian Pulisic is also set to miss out on the match at Stamford Bridge.
Who will win between Chelsea and Liverpool on Sunday?
The Blues will undoubtedly be hoping to get an early edge over the reigning champions. Both sides have banked their first three points of the season and Lampard will want to cause an upset and gain an early advantage.
However, without the influence of two well-regarded defensive signings and Pulisic – who contributed nine goals and six assists in the previous Premier League season – they could have a task on their hands.
Liverpool fans have flocked to the update and are hoping this will mean they can capitalise on the situation. One supporter has tweeted that it could mean the Reds have ‘a very high chance we beat them’ on Sunday.
