Chelsea's bad luck with injuries continue as yet another important player has suffered yet another training related injury. N'Golo Kante is not in the starting lineup against Burnley due to a niggle.

According to Lampard, Kante felt something in his hamstring after training and hence, Lampard felt it was better to be safe than sorry — especially given the midfielder’s injury problems earlier this season.

"He reported some feeling in his hamstring yesterday after training.

"We gave him overnight to see how it was but it wasn't good enough this morning so not good enough to play.

"Everybody knows how important N'Golo is for us but these things always give an opportunity and it opens the door for Ross Barkley to come in and play."

Truly unfortunate. We'll miss you, N'Golo.
