Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson will return for the champions’ Premier League clash with Chelsea but playmaker Bernardo Silva is banned.
Ederson missed the loss at Liverpool a fortnight ago with a hamstring injury but is fit for Saturday’s encounter at the Etihad Stadium.
Silva must serve a one-match suspension after being found guilty of misconduct over an offensive tweet sent to team-mate Benjamin Mendy. Left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko, centre-back Aymeric Laporte and winger Leroy Sane (all knee) are still out.
Christian Pulisic is in contention for Chelsea having returned to full training after a groin problem.
The United States forward missed his national side’s two matches in the international window, but is back in training with the Blues.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has a hamstring issue and is a long-shot to face Pep Guardiola’s City, but Lampard hopes the young England winger will not be sidelined for long.
Man City provisional squad: Ederson, Bravo, Walker, Cancelo, Stones, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Angelino, Mendy, Gundogan, Rodri, De Bruyne, D Silva, Sterling, Mahrez, Foden, Aguero, Jesus.
Chelsea provisional squad: Kepa, Caballero, Zouma, Emerson, James, Tomori, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Kovacic, Willian, Kante, Gilmour, Jorginho, Pulisic, Mount, Abraham, Giroud, Batshuayi.
