Ruben Loftus-Cheek exclusive: Frank Lampard gives fitness update

In the latest Ask Frank video, in which our head coach gives responses to questions posed by Chelsea fans in an exclusive question and answer session via The 5th Stand app, he is asked about Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s return towards playing again and he has news.

The queries put to Lampard this week also included a question on whether there would be chances for more young players in the FA Cup match at Hull on Saturday evening.

‘There might be the possibility to play some of the younger players, players who have not got so many minutes and regular games recently,’ the boss replied, ‘so I will certainly look at that but I want to win the game and put out a strong team that can do that.’

The importance of the FA Cup competition to Lampard personally was discussed as more questions were posed, as was how a manager nurtures young developing talent to deal with the pressure of playing in games bigger than they are used to.

Keeping on the FA Cup theme, he also reveals which is his favourite FA Cup goal from all those he scored, and with Jorginho having slotted away another spot-kick in our most recent game, against Arsenal on Tuesday night, what the secrets are to perfecting penalty taking.

Blues fans are asked regularly via The 5th Stand to supply their questions to be put to Lampard. They are posted via the Comments section on The 5th Stand and he takes time after his pre-match media conference is finished to answer a selection of them with our cameras filming the replies.
