Chelsea are set to host Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Thursday, June 25. Frank Lampard has revealed that everyone is ready to take part in the game, except for Callum Hudson-Odoi and Fikayo Tomori.

"We’re all the same as we were for Aston Villa," the boss said at the pre-match press conference, as quoted by the Blues' official website.

"Fikayo Tomori is still probably about a week away from training properly with us and Callum Hudson-Odoi is still searching for fitness. He’s fit but not match fit yet."

Tomori and Hudson-Odoi missed the 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Sunday.

The centre-back is struggling with a muscle issue while the forward picked up a minor injury in the training process ahead of the Premier League restart. The youngster is believed to be physically fit, albeit not match-fit.

On the bright side, Jorginho, who also missed the Villa clash due to suspension, is set to return to the starting XI against City.
