Amsterdam:

Chelsea's preparations for the Europa League final against Benfica were dealt a blow on Tuesday when manager Rafael Benitez revealed that Belgian forward Eden Hazard will miss the game with a hamstring injury.

Hazard, one of the revelations of Chelsea's season, hurt himself during his side's 2-1 win at Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday.

He travelled to Amsterdam with his team-mates on Tuesday, along with captain John Terry, who is a doubt with an ankle complaint, but Benitez said he would not feature in Wednesday's game.

"Hazard will not be available," Benitez said at Tuesday's pre-game press conference.

"John, we will try and see how he feels. But we will decide tomorrow."
