Frank Lampard has revealed Yerry Mina will have a scan on the calf problem he sustained in Sunday's 2-1 victory at Leicester City on Monday, and says he is hopeful the issue which forced Vitalii Mykolenko off midway through the second half was “just cramp”.
Lampard added he is hoping Mina’s injury is not “high-level” and the centre-back will be available to play a part in the Blues’ Premier League run-in.
Mina had to be taken off after 17 minutes of the clash at King Power Stadium and was replaced by Michael Keane
Mykolenko – who had earlier opened the scoring with a spectacular volley – had to be withdrawn on 66 minutes, with Jonjoe Kenny coming on for the Ukrainian.
“Yerry had a small feeling in his calf,” Lampard said. "We don’t know [how bad it is yet].
“Hopefully it isn’t a tear. He felt it in his calf, so he had to come off.
“We’re hoping it’s not a high-level injury and we can keep him involved in the next two weeks. He will have a scan tomorrow [Monday].
“With Myko, we hope it was just cramp. It would be a result if that is the case.”
