Chelsea manager Lampard positive over Emerson, Christensen injuries

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is positive over injuries to Emerson and Andreas Christensen.

Both players were substituted in the first-half on Sunday's 2-1 loss to Liverpool.

Speaking after the game, Lampard said: "Emerson is a similar injury to what he had, with a muscle.

"When you do that it means you've come back too soon. That's not a slight on Emerson, everyone wants to play this game, fair play. Those things shouldn't happen.

"Christensen is a bang on the knee which we will assess. The first thought is it's not that bad."
