Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba are out of Chelsea’s Champions League clash with Marseille at Stamford Bridge tomorrow.
Lampard will also miss England’s European Championship clash with Montenegro.
The midfielder still requires more time to recover from hernia surgery and has now been pencilled in for a return after the international break.
Ivory Coast striker Drogba will sit out the last of his two-match ban against Marseille. Chelsea are also without injured Salomon Kalou (thigh) and Yossi Benayoun (calf), but Gael Kakuta has recovered from his back injury.
Provisional squad: Cech, Ivanovic, Terry, Alex, Cole, Ramires, Mikel, Essien, Anelka, Borini, Kakuta, Malouda, Ferriera, Bruma, Zhirkov, Sturridge, Turnbull, Van Aanholt, McEachran.
