Chelsea boss Avram Grant insists Frank Lampard and Liverpool's Steven Gerrard can be paired together in England's midfield.

"I don't think it's a problem if you talk about Lampard and Gerrard," he told Chelsea's website.

"It is always good when you have good players that like to work on the pitch, if you have lazy players it's a problem. But if you have good players it's not a problem, you can fix the tactics that it will be useful for everybody. It is always good."
