Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is sweating over injuries to few players as Chelsea prepare to face Brighton and Hove Albion tomorrow.

Lampard told Chelsea media that he expects Pulisic to be back but Reece James and Alonso are set to be out for a week or two.

‘Azpi felt it from Tottenham when he came off towards the end. Against Southampton he was feeling it during the game. With Reece James injured the options are less, and he’s a fighter so he stayed on,' he said

‘At Arsenal he said he felt better, so fingers crossed. It was more precautionary we had Lamptey in the squad. Reece James is out for a week or 10 days. He’s had a bit of a niggle around his ankle injury which he had surgery on in pre-season. That was a bit of a worry, but the doctors are saying at the moment he’ll be a week or so.

‘Alonso is similar. It’s the top of a glute muscle injury. They’re in a similar boat, not terrible injuries but obviously they’re missing a pretty crucial time.’

Lampard also commented on Pulisic who missed the game against Arsenal: ‘After the Southampton game the lads did some strides and he felt a cramp in his hamstring. I wouldn’t even call it an injury. He trained a couple of days after that at quite a low level, for me it was more precautionary to keep him out of it [at Arsenal].’
