Chelsea facing defensive issues ahead of Barca clash

Chelsea interim manager Roberto Di Matteo is facing a bit of a defensive dilemma ahead of his team's Champions League semifinal encounter with Barcelona at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

John Terry is expected to feature in the match and Branislav Ivanovic will also be available since his suspension covers only domestic games.

But both Gary Cahill and David Luiz are doubts after suffering injuries in Sunday's 5-1 FA Cup semifinal win over Tottenham.

Luiz picked up a hamstring injury in the second half of the contest and had to be substituted while Cahill sustained an injury to his foot late in the match.

Chelsea faces a hectic schedule over the rest of the way with the club still competing in three competitions so any length of time out for either Luiz or Cahill will be a blow.
