Chelsea could face Manchester United in the biggest game of their season so far without England star Frank Lampard and Ivory Coast talisman Didier Drogba.

Frustrated coach Jose Mourinho confirmed that neither player is expected to be back for Sunday´s showpiece clash at Old Trafford as Chelsea remain in the grip of a goalscoring crisis.

"I am getting no good news from the medical department," Mourinho said. "I don´t think they will be back for Sunday. The news is not getting worse but I want them to tell me the players are ready to train. But there is no good news."
