Frank Lampard is confident returning forward Willian will give everything for Chelsea in Saturday's FA Cup final against Arsenal despite the uncertainty over the Brazilian's future.

Willian is expected to return to the first-team fold after overcoming an ankle injury in time for the final at Wembley, where Lampard can win his first piece of silverware as Chelsea boss.

He's been fantastic this season - he's shown the right attitude.

The winger put pen to paper on a short-term deal to keep him at the club until Chelsea's Champions League campaign concludes but there have been no updates as to what will happen next for the 31-year-old.

Chelsea's opponents Arsenal are one of a number of clubs reportedly interested in him but Lampard has backed his player to be fully focused on the task at hand on Saturday.

The boss led Chelsea to a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League this term and also has a Champions League last-16 second-leg clash with Bayern Munich on the horizon, although they trail 3-0 in that tie.

Asked if he thinks Willian will give everything for Chelsea in the FA Cup final, Lampard said: "Yes, because I've known Willian for many years now as a player and as his coach.

"He's been fantastic for us, he's been fantastic this season - he's shown the right attitude.

"So I would expect nothing less than [what] he's shown already, and that's Willian for you."

Chelsea areĀ 1.57 to win the FA Cup, while Arsenal are 2.37, at Wembley on Saturday.
