11:51 AM ET 04.13 | The England midfielder reveals that no Chelsea player's starting place is guaranteed so they are all competing to get the nod from the manager for the Wembley semifinal Frank Lampard fears that, despite his recent impressive form, he may still face the axe ahead of Chelsea's FA Cup semifinal showdown with Manchester City. The 34-year-old midfielder believes that no one is an automatic selection and that not one of his teammates is sure whether they'll be facing City at Wembley. Lampard has played 43 times in all competitions this season, bagging 19 goals in the process. "I don't think anyone is an automatic selection with the manager at the minute as we see because there are lots of games and he's changing it regularly," Lampard told The Daily Telegraph. "We're not sure we're playing on Sunday. I'm like everyone else: I want to play every game but it's not possible." He added, "That depends on how you're playing and what manager you have, and relationships, and things change."
