After Frank Lampard limped out of training with a calf injury, Chelsea were quick to reassure the public that the midfielder would be fit for Monday's match at Bolton Wanderers. According to the Blues' website, today's scan revealed no major problems - but how much can Chelsea supporters trust the word of their club?
