Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has confirmed that first-team duo Edouard Mendy and Thiago Silva are both unavailable for Saturday's Premier League fixture at home to Southampton.

The Blues' summer-signing picked up a thigh injury while away on worldwide duty with Senegal, which leaves Lampard with either Kepa Arrizabalaga or Willy Caballero in goal.

And veteran defender Thiago Silva will be rested, having recently featured for Brazil. 'Chilwell is in the squad.

"Mendy won't be fit for the match tomorrow".

The Chelsea boss says the 27-year-old has impressed in training and is in line to make his Blues' debut tomorrow, with Lampard hopeful he can make a big impact once he regains full match fitness.

Meanwhile, Brazilian center-back Silva has been banned from the game after having traveled a long way from South America and played against Peru in his nation's World Cup qualifiers on Wednesday.

Consider a neighborhood costume parade - "it's an easy way to keep safe space between children", they stated. Having a virtual Halloween costume contest.

"Ben Chilwell is in the squad". We took him out of the England squad around the injury that's had for a while now.

"Christian Pulisic is in the squad, he's fit and ready, and Hakim Ziyech is also in the squad".

Chelsea's new players are finding their feet and right now it feels like teams will get opportunities against them.

But Chelsea struck back immediately with a well-worked goal, the ever-busy Werner crossing for Havertz to earn his own first Premier League goal with a simple tap-in, only for Southampton to equalise again in injury time.

But he returned to action for Morocco and is expected to be a substitute on Saturday.
