Frank Lampard provides injury updates on N'Golo Kante, Willian and Antonio Rudiger

Ahead of their UEFA Super Cup clash against Liverpool, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has provided injury updates on N'Golo Kante, Willian, and Antonio Rudiger.

Kante's pre-season was cut short after a knee injury and was not deemed fit enough to start at Old Trafford, but came on as a 73rd-minute substitute against Manchester United with Lampard revealing that he picked up a fresh injury problem. Rudiger underwent surgery on a knee injury earlier this year which forced him out of last season.

Speaking in a press conference ahead of the UEFA Super Cup clash against Liverpool, Lampard provided injury updates on the trio, "Kante has a small injury and I will make a decision with that with him. Willian and Rudiger are here and they are in different stages.

"Willian is not far from fit, to put him in a high-intensity match is tough. He will be working through this week on fitness. Tomorrow he will be on the bench. Similarly with Rudiger.

"With Mason Mount, I don’t like to compare, particularly with myself, I can talk about him myself and he has a great work ethic and it’s important about how we want to play. Scoring goals he will step up levels as he develops, I’m a huge fan of his."
