After his dropping from the side, Kepa's future at the club has become uncertain, but Lampard reiterated his stance and said the whole squad is in control of their futures at the club. 

"Every player is in control of their destiny in how they play and train. This is Chelsea. We are trying to close the gap to the top. 

"There can be no one who can be relaxed or loose. We have to push everyday. Of course in the summer, we will look at the group as a whole and think ‘how can we improve?’. 

"But there are no decisions or thoughts beyond the game tomorrow as far as I’m concerned."
