Reece James, Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma did not play a single minute of the match.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, Frank Lampard confirmed that James wasn’t in the 18-man squad, as he has picked up a hamstring problem.

He, however, admitted James probably would have been replaced by Cesar Azpilicueta anyway.

Zouma missed out completely in order to give him a rest, while 36-year-old Thiago Silva was benched for the same reason.

“Reece James has got a small hamstring issue, not saying that’s why Azpi played, I probably would’ve played him anyway,” Lampard said.

“Thiago Silva I think at his age I had to consider the games. Kurt Zouma’s played a lot of games himself.”
