Lampard also said that Marco Alonso will be in contention to start the game.
How Chelsea may line-up against Arsenal?
Reece James' match fitness will decide whether Emerson starts at left-back or not, while Kurt Zouma may replace Andreas Christensen at the back.
Midfielder Matteo Kovacic has been seeing the action from the bench and Lampard may name the Croatian in the starting 11 here, alongside Jorginho and N'Golo Kante. Mason Mount may lose his place in the playing 11 as a result.
Callum Hudson-Odoi is in good form and Lampard is expected to retain him in the playing 11, with Willian and Tammy Abraham forming the forward line.
Captain options and Chelsea key players!
Tammy Abraham is leading the scoring charts for Chelsea with 13 goals. He is a no-nonsense choice here.
But Willian has been the man in the big games for Chelsea this season. Expect the Brazilian to leave an impact in this match.
Jorginho will be key here for Chelsea, with his positioning and tackling could decide the game.
Arsenal team news:
Gunners are without leading goal-scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who is serving a three-game suspension.
Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta confirmed that Sokratis will miss the Chelsea game due to illness, while Sead Kolasinac and Reiss Nelson are also out until early February.
Callum Chambers and Kieran Tierney remain the long-term absentee.
How Arsenal may line-up against Chelsea?
Shkodran Mustafi will partner David Luiz at the back, while fit-again Hector Bellerin and Bukayo Saka on the right and left side of the four-man backline.
Aleksandr Lacazette will lead the attack for the Gunners in the absence of Aubameyang.
One of Matteo Gunendouzi and Lucas Torreira will partner Granit Xhaka in the midfield, while Mesut Ozil is expected to start in a no-10 role, with Nicolas Pepe and Gabriel Martinelli on the wings.
Captain options and Arsenal key players!
Arsenal's main threat will come from Aleksandr Lacazette and wide players, Nicolas Pepe and Gabriel Martinelli.
Pepe, in particular, can have the biggest impact as Chelsea's left side has been a cause for worry for Lampard.
Also, Willian doesn't trackback often and Martinelli may find the space to weave his magic.
