Salah no go for Hammers clash


Chelsea will be without new signing Mohamed Salah when they take on West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening.

The Egypt forward’s signing was confirmed on Sunday but he has not yet arrived in England to join up with the rest of the squad and will have to wait before making his debut.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho has promised not to make changes with Monday’s Manchester City match in mind, but Demba Ba could be given a rare start up front in place of Samuel Eto’o.

Fernando Torres (knee) and midfielder Marco van Ginkel (knee) are the only injury absentees.
