Lampard, Schurrle, and De Bruyne will all train next week, according to Jose Mourinho

That's one preseason tour in the books with no major injuries to report, so it looks like Jose Mourinho will have a full squad to choose from in the United States

After the game today, Jose Mourinho gave us a brief update on what's going on with the three Blues currently dealing with injury. Luckily, it sounds as if none of the three are major worries, and that we'll see them all back in action very soon:

'Lampard is okay to train Monday so Monday he will join the group. We protect every little situation and today we protected Schurrle, we sent De Bruyne home but Lampard preferred to stay and have treatment here with the group. Monday we are ready to have Lampard, Schurrle and De Bruyne working with the team, and with the six guys that arrive to train on Sunday who played in the Confederations Cup.'

If all three are set to resume training on Monday, I'd guess that all three will be involved when we take on Inter Milan in our next preseason game. I'd assume the six players involved in the Confederations Cup will be limited to shorter minutes in that game (if they play at all), as they'll likely still be working their way back into shape.

The full squad likely means that quite a few youngsters will not be heading to America, and we'll likely see quite a few loan situations resolved next week. It was fun watching them with the team in Asia though, as many of them really impressed.
