However, Andre Villas-Boas had positive news to report at Lyon's Stade de Gerland on Wednesday night with the possibility that Jermain Defoe could return to training next week.

The striker picked up an ankle injury at West Brom on February 3.

"Hopefully he'll be back on Monday, but we don't want to rush any decision," said Andre.

Jermain remains out for the time being though and is joined on the sidelines by Sandro, Younes Kaboul and Tom Huddlestone - all three have knee injuries.
