Lampard to remain sidelined

Midfielder Frank Lampard will miss Chelsea's Champions League clash with Marseille at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday as well as England's European Championship clash with Montenegro.

Lampard still requires more time to recover from hernia surgery and has now been pencilled in for a return after the international break.

Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba sits out the last of his two-match ban against Marseille. Chelsea are also without injured Salomon Kalou (thigh) and Yossi Benayoun (calf), but Gael Kakuta has recovered from his back injury.
