Chelsea will be without Frank Lampard for about two weeks the club has confirmed.

The veteran midfielder injured his calf in the 2-1 loss at Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Tuesday night and will now be unavailable until the second week of November.

Lampard's leg problem will keep him out of Sunday's Premier League clash with Manchester United as well as Wednesday's Capital One Cup meeting against the same opponents.
