Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard says the team will be ok despite losing David Luiz to injury.

The Brazilian is expected to miss Wednesday's Champions League semi-final first leg against Barcelona after injuring his hamstring in yesterday's FA Cup semi-final triumph over Tottenham but Lampard suggests there is adequate cover within the squad.

"Luiz might be fairly bad but (Gary) Cahill will be all right. Fortunately we have back-up," Lampard said.

"Branislav Ivanovic is suspended for the league games but he will be around to face Barcelona.

"It is a shame for David personally and for us as a team because he is such a good player."
