Chelsea will not risk England midfielder Frank Lampard against Tottenham in their Barclays Premier League clash on Sunday because he is not match fit.

The England international midfielder is back in training after groin and tendon injuries but requires match practice.

Right-back Jose Bosingwa is out with a torn hamstring but left-back Ashley Cole is fit after recovering from a slight ankle knock.

Provisional squad: Cech, Turnbull, Hilario, Ivanovic, Ferreira, Cole, Terry, Essien, Mikel, Ramires, McEachran, Malouda, Kalou, Drogba, Anelka, Bruma, Sturridge, Kakuta, Van Aanholt.
