Lampard started Manchester City's Premier League match against Arsenal on Saturday, but he was replaced by Samir Nasri at halftime.

Lampard isn't expected to get much playing time for City while he is on loan from New York City FC, so his start Saturday shouldn't get fantasy owners curious if he could be a cheap buy until he heads back to MLS in January.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed Friday that Lampard is in the squad to face Arsenal on Saturday.

Lampard's fantasy upside is very limited given the players ahead of him on the depth chart, and while he is only on loan until January, City have no reason to play him over their full-status players.

Lampard was not in the 18-man squad for Manchester City's 2-0 win over Newcastle on Sunday.

Lampard is with Manchester City on loan from MLS side New York City FC, and while he could make some appearances in the FA Cup or Capital One Cup, he isn't likely to make a major impact in Premier League play, if everyone ahead of him stays healthy.

Lampard has officially joined Manchester City on loan.

In preparation for New York City FC's inaugural season next year, Lampard will link up with the team's affiliate club in Manchester. The box-to-box midfielder will be available for selection for all of the Citizens' domestic and European matches, but could find it difficult to get consistent playing time given the sheer amount of quality depth at the Etihad.

Lampard is expected to be sent on a six-month loan to Manchester City ahead of the 2015 MLS season, the BBC reports.

With New York City FC not set to begin play until the 2015 season, Lampard will join the parent club to keep his fitness. Lampard could be available to the club for Premier League and Champions League matches, although he is unlikely to have a major fantasy impact in either.

Lampard officially joined New York City FC of Major League Soccer on Thursday after signing a designated player contract.

Lampard moves on a free transfer from Chelsea, who decided after last season to let their all-time leading goal scorer leave. Lampard's best days are behind him, but he's still a capable scorer from the midfield and he'll be a vital piece of the NYC FC attack along with former Barcelona striker David Villa, who was the club's first signing earlier this year.

Lampard is expected to complete his move to MLS side New York City FC on Thursday, ESPN FC reports.

Lampard will join former Barcelona star David Villa with the expansion club set to begin play in 2015. Lampard was unable to come to a new agreement with Chelsea, where he spent the last 13 years of his career, leaving as the club's all-time leader scorer with 211 goals. He will come in as one of the highest-profile players in Major League Soccer with plenty still left in the tank.
