Chelsea and Frank Lampard are sweating on the fitness of Christian Pulisic ahead of Wednesday night's London derby against West Ham United.

The USA international who has been in brilliant form since the restart - scoring against Aston Villa as well as Manchester City - limped off during the second half of the FA Cup quarter-final win over Leicester City at the weekend.

Speaking after the game at the King Power Stadium, the Blues head coach was hopeful the calf problem wasn't too serious.

"Christian felt a bit of tightness in his calf in the second drinks break so I took him off straight away," Lampard told reporters. We will find out over the next day or so how that is.

"Hopefully it is nothing that puts him out because we can see what he is doing in the last two games."

A couple of days have since passed and Lampard can't confirm if Pulisic will be in the squad that makes the short trip across the capital to the London Stadium.

"Christian has felt a bit of tightness in the calf," Lampard revealed in his pre-match press conference on Tuesday afternoon. "We are managing him, but no answer yet.

The good news is that defender Andreas Christensen is fit again after missing the win over the Foxes with a hip problem and could be in contention to reclaim his place from Kurt Zouma.

"Christensen is in the squad, but we'll have to check tomorrow," Lampard added.
