Frank Lampard was described as "exceptional" by Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas on Sunday despite the Portuguese coach leaving the veteran England midfielder out of the last three big games.

The 33-year-old will return to the side on Monday after Ramires picked up his fifth domestic booking of the season at White Hart Lane in the 1-1 draw against Spurs in midweek.

"Lamps is an exceptional player and his level of commitment and his level of talent will never be in doubt," said Villas-Boas.

"I'm sure he'll make his way back into the team again with the way he fights in training to try to get back into contention."
