Neville believes Chelsea boss Lampard has decided to sell Jorginho

Manchester United legend Gary Neville believes Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has already decided to sell Jorginho.

Jorginho was once again named among the substitutes for the 3-2 win at Crystal Palace on Tuesday evening - and Neville claims this is further proof Lampard is willing to axe the Italy international.

He told Sky Sports: "You have to think that he is being managed out of Stamford Bridge.

"I think it's been clear from the moment Frank Lampard came in that he wants to build a young and hungry squad.

"Look at the way David Luiz was let go. With the way Jorginho has been dealt with, it's quite clear where Lampard wants to take the team.

"When you think of Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp over the last few years, they don't veer away from the plan for any player.

"Frank Lampard has got a clear plan."
