Lampard likely to miss FA Cup clash

England midfielder Frank Lampard is likely to miss Chelsea's FA Cup Fourth Round tie at neighbours Queens Park Rangers on Saturday because of a calf injury.

Lampard limped off after 36 minutes of last Saturday's 0-0 draw at Norwich City in the Premier League and scans have shown he sustained a small tear in his calf muscle, the London club said on their website on Monday.

The 33-year-old is now expected to join up with the rest of Chelsea's squad for this week's training camp in Majorca.

Lampard has often been a victim of new manager Andre Villas- Boas's rotation policy this season but he is still the Stamford Bridge club's joint highest scorer in the league this season with nine goals, the same as forward Daniel Sturridge.
