His dad, Frank Snr said that his boy had a good chance to play against the north London rivals had the match not being re-arranged from its original Monday night slot.
"I think Frank had a chance," said his dad.
"But the game was brought forward. I think he could be available, but it might just be a week too early for him."
This means that Lampard could return to the side for the away match against Birmingham City on Saturday week.
