Jorginho's return will give Lampard a course for concern when selecting who would pair N'Golo Kante in the heart of the midfield.

The Italian midfielder missed the tie with Aston Villa through suspension and he is expected to be given a starting role.

And this means that either Ruben Loftus-Cheek or Matteo Kovacic will be dropped from the side that will face the high scoring City.

Mason Mount could also be rested for American star Christian Pulisic at his impressing showing as a substitute against Villa.

Chelsea still has a quarter-final FA Cup clash with Leicester City at the weekend as Mount is expected to make a second-half appearance against the Citizens.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Willian and Pedro will not be leaving Chelsea at the end of June when their respective contracts expire.

The attacking duo have agreed with the Blues to stay until the current Premier League season ends in July.

However, both the Brazilian and the Spaniard will not participate in Chelsea's Champions League campaign in August.

Legit.ng had also reported that Mario Pasalic is now officially an Atalanta player after the high flying Serie A club decided to make his loan deal permanent.

The 25-year-old has spent two seasons on loan with the Serie A club scoring 15 goals in 74 appearances.

And the club who have already made it through to the quarter finals of the Champions League for the first time in their history have now confirmed the Croatian midfielder has done enough to earn himself a deal.
