    KEP OUT?

    Kepa has been given just four months to prove himself by Frank Lampard.

    The Telegraph claim that the Spaniard will be shipped out if he doesn't improve before the end of the season.

    Burnley's Nick Pope and Man United goalkeeper Dean Henderson (currently on loan at Sheffield United) have been lined up as potential replacements.

    Earlier today, Frank Lampard vocally criticised Kepa's performances in his press conference, but said he is safe for now.

    EASY THREESY

    What do you think of Chelsea's new shirt sponsor, fans?

    The mobile phone network 3 will replace Yokohama Tyres from 2020-21 on the front of their shirts.

    Don't worry, it doesn't mean every player is a left-back, that'll still be Marcus Alonso.

    INTERCHANGE

    Inter are just smashing it this transfer window.

    They have given Napoli permission to talk to winger Matteo Politano, while the club want to bring in Fernando Llorente.

    The deal for the former Spurs striker Llorente is understood to be a loan.

    It will also see the Serie A title-challengers end their interest in Chelsea's Olivier Giroud.

    ABE'S STABLE

    Tammy Abraham has NOT fractured his foot, according to Frank Lampard.

    The Chelsea manager is breathing a huge sigh of relief after he clattered into the ad hoardings during the Blues' 2-2 draw against Arsenal.

    Lamps said: “The good news is he hasn't fractured anything, but the other news is we still have to see how he develops.

    “He's not fit for the weekend, but whether he'll be fit for Leicester I'm still not sure. It's still not clear at the moment.”
