Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson says Chelsea still need their veterans.

Lawro wrote in the Mirror: "The shock defeat to West Brom underlines the importance of John Terry and Frank Lampard to Chelsea.

"I don't whether Frank is indeed to going to China. Terry is picking up more and more injuries.

"But the men waiting in the wings do not appear not to have their leadership abilities.

"Gary Cahill and David Luiz are capable players but against West Brom there was nobody that stood up to be counted with Chelsea's backs against the wall.

"The sooner Terry and Lampard are back the better."
