Frank Lampard answers all the burning questions one needed to know about Chelsea players Tammy Abraham and Willian.
‘It’s an ankle injury around the ligament,’ revealed Lampard. ‘He’s got inflammation and the inflammation is causing pain so we’re looking at ways to get rid of that pain.
‘It’s been a month [since he suffered the injury against Arsenal] and we’re still talking about it so it’s been a frustrating one because we’ve seen him come back and go away. Sometimes things that are pain thresAnohold are like that but if he’s not comfortable then he probably has to come out for a few days at least to see where it’s going.’
Another question that has popped up is about Willian’s contract extension.
‘It’s an ongoing conversation with the club,’ said Lampard. ‘I know it’s maybe not ideal timing but I get asked every few days and players get asked after games so it’s not always easy for them to say nothing. I don’t have a problem with that but I don’t want to get too drawn into it.
‘We’re working day-to-day to try to finish as high as we can this year and I’m not jumping ahead to the summer. It’s not over so we’ll see.’
