Lampard offers a fitness update on French duo ahead of Luton

Frank Lampard has confirmed that Olivier Giroud is fit to face Luton this weekend but N’Golo Kante remains sidelined.

The head coach confirmed the update on the French duo in our latest edition of Rehab Report, with Lampard also explaining when he hopes to have Kante back for selection.

‘Olivier is fit,’ confirmed Lampard. ‘He trained with us today and he’s fine for the weekend.

‘N’Golo on the other hand is not fit and won’t be available. He’s working outside on his own with the physios at the moment and we hope to have him back as soon as possible.

‘We will have to see with N’Golo, as we don’t want to rush him, but we hope to have him back by next week.’
