Frank Lampard and Ryan Bertrand return to training

The injured Chelsea pair are both back in training ahead of the Saturday game at White Hart Lane.

Both Frank Lampard and Ryan Bertrand have returned to training on Thursday, according to the club's official website. Lampard was out injured during the international break with a calf problem, while Bertrand had been suffering from illness.

Roberto Di Matteo has reported the pair as healthy enough to take part on Saturday against Tottenham, although it's unclear if either of the pair will be in the starting lineup. Bertrand would seem unlikely to start, as Eden Hazard should absolutely love the space that Kyle Walker tends to leave behind him when he makes runs that leave him hopelessly out of position.

Lampard is a bit less clear, as neither he or Ramires have really locked down the second spot in our midfield next to John Obi Mikel. For my money, Roberto Di Matteo would use Ramires in that role on Saturday, as he's been healthy and was in very good form over the break.
