London: England midfielder Frank Lampard is likely to miss Chelsea`s FA Cup fourth-round tie at neighbours Queens Park Rangers on Saturday because of a calf injury.

Lampard limped off after 36 minutes of last Saturday`s 0-0 draw at Norwich City in the Premier League and scans have shown he sustained a small tear in his calf muscle, the London club said on their website ( on Monday.

The 33-year-old is now expected to join up with the rest of Chelsea`s squad for this week`s training camp in Majorca.
