Luiz out of semi-final

Chelsea suffered a blow on Tuesday night as Roberto Di Matteo confirmed defender David Luiz would miss both legs of the Champions League semi-final with Barcelona due to the hamstring injury which forced him off in Sunday's FA Cup thrashing of Tottenham.

"It's a big loss for us,'' Di Matteo said. "He's a fantastic centre-half who was in good form. We hope to get him back in two weeks, maybe, and hopefully he will be ready for the end of the season.''

Di Matteo faces the biggest selection dilemma of his fledgling managerial career as he tries to juggle his resources during a punishing schedule in which every game is crucial.

His most difficult decision looks to be whether to start Didier Drogba or Fernando Torres.

Praising both, Di Matteo said: "I still have a few doubts in my mind about the team selection. But a good night's sleep does good sometimes. I will decide tomorrow morning.''
