Chelsea boss Lampard sweating over the fitness of Werner, while Pulisic suffers injury setback

Timo Werner suffered a dead leg, but Frank Lampard is hopeful the Chelsea forward will be fit to face Liverpool.

Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard hopes Timo Werner is fit to face Liverpool after suffering a dead leg, while Christian Pulisic has had a setback.

Werner won a penalty on his Chelsea debut as Lampard’s side recorded a 3-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League on Monday.

While the forward played 90 minutes, Lampard confirmed Werner had suffered a dead leg, although he expects the Germany international to be ready to face Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

“Timo took the knock when he won the penalty,” he told reporters.

“It’s more of a dead leg we hope so I wouldn’t think too much in terms of next week there.

“But I would like to think if it’s a dead leg we’ve got a bit of time for him to get back and right and he obviously finished the game from having that earlyish kind of knock.”
