Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard and defender John Terry could return from injury for Saturday's game at West Ham.

Lampard needed surgery on his groin and Terry had a hamstring problem as both missed England's Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland.

"Lampard had surgery and I think that he will start to train this week," said Blues boss Carlo Ancelotti.

"Terry will start to train with the squad this week and I think he will be able to play against West Ham."

Both players started against Stoke in Chelsea's last outing on 28 August.

Ancelotti added: "We will see how Lampard trains and we will take a decision for the game against West Ham.

"Terry didn't have surgery but he used the last week to improve his hamstring."

Chelsea are top of the Premier League, having won all of their opening three fixtures this season and scoring 14 goals without conceding.
