Lampard, Ivanovic out for Chelsea

1:51 pm on 2 January 2014

The Chelsea midfielder, Frank Lampard, and defender, Branislav Ivanovic, will be out of action for the football club until the end of January, after sustaining injuries in last weekend's 2-1 home win over Liverpool.

Ivanovic suffered a knee injury and was substituted in the first half of the match, while the England international Lampard, sustained a muscle injury and didn't return for the second half.

The Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, says the injuries will rule the pair out for about a month.

Chelsea beat Southampton 3-0 this morning to leave the London club two points behind the Premier League leaders, Arsenal.
