Loftus-Cheek featured in a more advanced number 10 role in Monday's 3-1 win at Brighton but continues to receive backing from Lampard despite clearly searching for genuine rhythm.

"It's a position that Ruben can play for us, we've got injuries with Ziyech out and Pulisic out as well," said Lampard, of deploying Loftus-Cheek in a more advanced role.

Both creative talents will be doubtful to face Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, with Lampard happy to hand Loftus-Cheek more opportunities moving forward.

The Blues have invested more than £200m in a summer rebuild, but Stamford Bridge boss Lampard is determined to see Loftus-Cheek hit back to his best.

The 25-year-old battled back to make nine appearances at the tail-end of last term during Project Restart, but is still working towards full sharpness.

"Ruben obviously has been out for a long time and even his return to play was pretty broken by the lockdown and the restart when he was just available to play a few games," said Lampard.

Gary Neville branded Loftus-Cheek's Brighton performance "disappointing" in punditry for Sky Sports, suggesting the talented midfielder could struggle as Chelsea continue their big-money overhaul under Lampard.
