Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is very hopeful

Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is "very hopeful" that Gary Cahill and David Luiz will be fit for the Champions League final against Bayern Munich but has called on two youth players as cover.

Bayern Munich v Chelsea

John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic are both ruled out of the match through suspension, and Cahill and Luiz have not featured in recent weeks due to injury. Chelsea are also without Raul Meireles and Ramires through suspension and Florent Malouda faces a race to recover from a hamstring problem.

As a result, Todd Kane, 18, and Nathaniel Chalobah, 17, have travelled to Munich ahead of Saturday's final but Di Matteo is confident the injured players will be available.
