Frank Lampard has shared news of a potentially big blow for Chelsea ahead of their clash with West Ham, when speaking to Football.London today, suggesting that Christian Pulisic is struggling with a thigh complaint.

The Blues head to the London Stadium tomorrow night on the back of six straight wins in all competitions.
The Hammers, meanwhile, are in the midst of a woeful run of form.
They have won just two Premier League games in 12 attempts since David Moyes took over in December 2019.
And many are expecting Chelsea to take three points from their clash with West Ham tomorrow night.
Lampard spoke to reporters today, and suggested that the in-form Christian Pulisic is a doubt for the game, as quoted by Football.London:
“Christian felt a bit of tightness in his calf in the second drinks break so I took him off straight away,” Lampard told reporters. We will find out over the next day or so how that is. Hopefully it is nothing that puts him out because we can see what he is doing in the last two games.”
The United States international moved to Stamford Bridge from Borussia Dortmund in January 2019 for around £58 million (BBC).
And the 21-year-old has made a very impressive start to his Chelsea career, with eight goals and six assists in 26 games in all competitions thus far (Transfermarkt).
Pulisic has been particularly impressive since English football resumed two weeks ago, chalking up two goals in three games.
So if he does miss out tomorrow, West Ham might just fancy their chances of taking something from their clash with the Blues.
