Frank Lampard has been handed a huge injury boost, with Edouard Mendy's thigh problem less serious than first feared.

The £22m goalkeeper is optimistic that he will be out for no more than two weeks after suffering the injury on international duty, according to The Athletic.

Though it is just a minor injury, it throws up the likelihood of Lampard having to turn to the under-fire Kepa Arrizabalaga or 39-year-old Willy Caballero for the visit of Southampton in a week.
