Lampard plans to include Chelsea senior players against St. Patrick's Athletic

Frank Lampard says he will introduce a number of senior Chelsea players into Saturday's friendly with St. Patrick's Athletic.

Lampard kicked off his rein as Blues boss with a 1-1 draw with Bohemians on Wednesday night.

David Luiz, Olivier Giroud, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic all missed the match, but Lampard says they could feature on Saturday.

He said: "Other than the injured boys and Christian Pulisic, we've been pretty much together and integrated for the past couple of days and we'll integrate more in the coming days.

"You'll see some of them at the weekend and then we'll start getting there in terms of putting a squad together."
