Frank Lampard: Could return for Chelsea

Sunday, January 19

Swansea v Tottenham

Dwight Tiendalli and Roland Lamah will return to action for injury-hit Swansea but Jonathan de Guzman, Nathan Dyer, Pablo Hernandez, Michel Vorm and Michu all remain sidelined. Jose Canas is the latest addition to the injury list after damaging ankle ligaments against Manchester United.

Tottenham midfielder Sandro could make his return from a one-month calf injury lay-off. Winger Andros Townsend came through an under-21 game against Newcastle unscathed on Tuesday and could feature. Defenders Jan Vertonghen (ankle) and Younes Kaboul (thigh) are back in training but will not be risked, while Paulinho remains sidelined with an ankle injury.

Chelsea v Manchester United

Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard could return from a calf injury. Right-back Branislav Ivanovic only returned to training on Friday following a knee problem and is unlikely to figure. New signing Nemanja Matic has been added to the squad but boss Jose Mourinho has said he will not start.

Wayne Rooney (groin) and Robin van Persie (thigh) will again be missing when Manchester United visit Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Rooney (groin) has at least started running again, whilst Van Persie (thigh) should return to training on Monday after nearly six weeks on the sidelines.

United are looking for their sixth win out of seven in the Premier League but Moyes has never won a head-to-head meeting with Jose Mourinho.
