Chelsea will be without the suspended David Luiz for tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League game at West Ham.

Chelsea will be without the suspended David Luiz for tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League game at West Ham.

The club are also without injured trio John Terry, Frank Lampard and Daniel Sturridge.

Terry (knee) and Lampard (calf) are back in training but interim manager Rafael Benitez is refusing to rush either back with the Club World Cup on the horizon.

The game comes too soon for Sturridge (hamstring), meaning Fernando Torres will once again lead the line.

Provisional squad: Cech, Ivanovic, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, Cole, Bertrand, Mikel, Romeu, Ramires, Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Moses, Marin, Piazon, Torres, Turnbull.
