Lampard confident despite Chelsea losing Luiz

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."
