Lampard updates on three first-team stars ahead of Ajax clash

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has provided an injury update on three first-team players ahead of the Blues' Champions League game against Ajax on the road.

The west London giants have been in fine form of late and they have registered five victories on the bounce with three of them coming in the Premier League.

Still, they have had to deal with injury concerns throughout the opening phase of the season and Lampard has delivered an update on three players ahead of tomorrow's European clash.

In a report covered by the Blues' official website, Lampard said that Ross Barkley, Antonio Rudiger and N'Golo Kante are sidelined for the encounter but the former may return for the weekend game at Burnley.

"Ross will hopefully be fit to train by Thursday, Rudiger trained with us today, he will be out of contention for the weekend. N'Golo is similarly training but we'll see for the weekend," he told.

Rudiger is certainly out for the weekend after just returning to regular training after his groin problem. Kante, on the other hand, may be rested for somewhile in order to avoid any more injury setbacks for him.
