Lampard knows his Chelsea line-up for Man Utd clash

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has said he has "more or less" decided his team for Sunday's Premier League opener against Manchester United.

But the 41-year-old added that players could change his mind with an impressive week on the Cobham training pitch.

"I more or less know my team selection but it is a long week to come and players have to train every day to get themselves in the team, so the door isn't shut on that.

"We need all the squad, we need players to be competitive, we need players to come on like Giroud did on Saturday and show a desire to impact a game, to try to turn a result and that is what we need for the season, so I want to set that tone going into it."
