LONDON: Chelsea manager Frank Lampard conceded that skipper Cesar Azpilicueta and winger Christian Pulisic won't be fit for their UEFA Champions League clash against Bayern Munich next weekend.
On Saturday, Chelsea suffered triple injury blows during their FA Cup final defeat at the hands of Arsenal, who won their 14th title by recording a 2-1 victory.
Lampard revealed that Azpilicueta and Pulisic won't be fit in time for their UCL Round of 16 second leg against Bayern.
He also said winger Pedro dislocated his shoulder during the Arsenal clash and remains doubtful for next weekend. "On the injuries, Lampard says Azpi and Pulisic have hamstring strains which need scanning but they won't be fit for next weekend," Chelsea's Twitter post read. "Pedro might have a dislocated shoulder but that is not certain yet."
Following the defeat, Lampard also criticised his players for being complacent in the final. IANS
