Injured Chelsea Star In Race Against Time To Face Man City
Chelsea skipper John Terry has until Friday to prove his fitness ahead of Sunday’s huge FA Cup fifth round clash with Manchester City at Stamford Bridge, according to the Mirror.
Terry limped out of last weekend’s 5-1 thrashing of Newcastle United after suffering a hamstring injury during the first half and was subsequently forced to miss Tuesday night’s Champions League last-16 first leg defeat at Paris Saint-Germain.
The good news is that the Mirror claim scan results have shown no serious damage but the Blues are concerned that rushing the defender back too soon could result in a setback which would rule Terry out for up to a month.
Therefore, the newspaper says that the skipper has been given until after Friday’s training session to prove he’s fit and available for selection to face Manchester City in the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.
If Terry is once again ruled out, then Branislav Ivanovic should continue alongside Gary Cahill in the middle of defence after putting in a solid shift against PSG in midweek as Kurt Zouma has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.
Even without their captain, Chelsea should be confident of progressing to the quarter finals of the FA Cup as City are expected to rest several of their key players ahead of their Champions League trip to Dynamo Kiev next Wednesday.
