Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge will not be available for the weekend's home fixture against Stoke City.

The Blues host the Potters at Stamford Bridge but will be without Sturridge for the second time this week as the hamstring injury that kept him out of Wednesday's Champions League meeting with Juventus is not quite right.

Sturridge came on as a late sub in last weekend's scoreless draw at QPR and sustained a slight hamstring strain which will again deny him the chance to play tomorrow.
