Jose Mourinho has confirmed that John Terry and Ramires are both major injury doubts for Chelsea’s trip to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.

Terry was forced off on a stretcher with fifteen minutes remaining during Chelsea’s 4-0 Champions League victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv last night after picking up an ankle injury.

Ramires on the other hand failed to make the matchday squad after suffering a muscle injury while the Premier League champions trained at the Sammy Ofer Stadium on Monday afternoon.

Speaking after the resounding win on Tuesday night, Mourinho confirmed to reporters that the duo are major doubts for Sunday’s trip to White Hart Lane and blamed the state of the pitch for the two injuries.

The Portuguese coach is quoted as saying by Sky Sports:

“The surface was bad and dangerous. John has an ankle problem that we don’t know yet the dimension of. For John to leave the pitch with the result 1-0 I know already that he is in trouble.

“My medical department is really good. John is a special guy, with a special desire to recover. But I think to leave the pitch with the result 1-0, I don’t believe too much that he can play [against Spurs].”

“Yesterday we tried to protect [the pitch], we trained just a little bit. But by my surprise Maccabi were training after us, plus the warm-up before the game,”

“The pitch was really bad. Ramires slid and had a muscular injury.”

Losing Terry for such an important game would be a huge blow for Chelsea as they look to build some momentum after a disastrous start to the season, so I’m sure Mourinho will be praying for some positive news when his skipper undergoes further tests at Cobham today.
