Frank Lampard is expected to miss Chelsea's FA Cup fourth round clash against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday after suffering a calf injury.

The England midfielder limped off in the first half of Chelsea's goalless draw with Norwich at the weekend, and he was later seen wearing heavy strapping on his left leg.

However, scans have shown that Lampard only suffered a small tear to his muscle and could be available for selection as early as next week.

A statement on Chelsea's official website confirmed that Lampard will join up with his Blues team-mates in Mallorca, where they are training this week.
