Henry set to miss Chelsea clash

Thierry Henry looks set to miss Barcelona's Champions League semi-final second leg with Chelsea on Wednesday after picking up a knee injury during the Catalan side's 6-2 mauling of Real Madrid at the weekend.

According to reports in the Spanish press this afternoon, the former Arsenal striker could be out for eight to ten days but will still travel to London with the rest of the squad as they look to recreate their form at the weekend and reach their first Champions League final since 2006.

Barcelona are already without centre backs Rafael Márquez (with a knee injury) and Carlos Puyol who is suspended. Chelsea will be hoping to take advantage of the Catalan team's defensive weaknesses with Hiddink set to pair Drogba and Anelka together upfront.
