Frank Lampard suffers fresh injury blow at Chelsea
Lampard has not played for Chelsea since August
Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard will be out for a further three weeks after suffering a new injury in training, manager Carlo Ancelotti said.
The 32-year-old was hoping to return to action against Sunderland this weekend after missing more than two months of the season with a hernia problem.
But he injured the abductor muscle in his leg in training on Thursday and will not now be fit until December.
Lampard's last appearance was in the 2-0 win over Stoke City on 28 August.
He had a hernia operation on 31 August and as well as missing Premier League and Champions League matches for Chelsea, he was also absent for England's Euro 2012 qualifying victories over Bulgaria and Switzerland and the 0-0 draw with Montenegro.
