Frank Lampard has confirmed that Edouard Mendy will play no part in Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Southampton this weekend.

The Blues’ summer-signing picked up a thigh injury while away on international duty with Senegal, which leaves Lampard with either Kepa Arrizabalaga or Willy Caballero in goal.

‘Mendy won’t be fit for the match tomorrow, we hope it won’t be too long,’ Lampard confirmed.

When asked who will be feature in his place, Lampard refused to pick between his two keepers, saying: ‘I’ll make that decision myself for tomorrow.’

The injury blow comes after Mendy made a promising start to his Chelsea career, keeping their first clean sheet of the season in victory over Crystal Palace on his debut.

There are hopes the 28-year-old will be fit enough to return for the club’s Champions League opener against Sevilla on Tuesday.
