Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has delivered an update on Danish centre back Andreas Christensen who was criticised by Blues legend John Terry after the recent Premier League encounter between Chelsea and Aston Villa. John Terry is the current assistant manager to gaffer Dean Smith at Aston Villa and he criticised Andreas Christensen for feigning an injury shortly before his Aston Villa side equalised at the start of the second half to secure a 1-1 draw away from home.

In his pre-match presser before the FA Cup third round clash with Morecambelast week Friday, Chelsea manager Lampard decided to set the record straight on Christensen as he defended the player in the face of criticisms from John Terry and others. According to him, Andreas Christensen suffered a knee injury during the game and he was sent for a scan. Thankfully, the injury is not a serious one and the player is now expected to be in contention for the West London Derby away to Fulhamat the weekend.

Andreas Christensen was given a rare start during the recent league game at home to Aston Villa and he went on to pick up a knee problem during the collision with Villa skipper Jack Grealish in the build-up to the Aston Villa equaliser. Andreas Christensen failed to get up after his collision with Grealish and his absence in the Chelsea defence at that point helped Villa to score an equaliser. He received a lot of criticisms from Chelsea fans and John Terry who was asked about the incident on Twitter. In his response, John Terry said Andreas Christensen should have gotten up.
Andreas Christensen has not played for Chelsea since that Aston Villa game. He has missed the last two games for the Blues in all competitions. Christensen missed the 3-1 home loss to Manchester City in the league as well as the 4-0 home victory over Morecambein the FA Cup.
