John Terry and Gary Cahill to miss Chelsea’s FA Cup clash with Manchester City

John Terry and Gary Cahill could miss Chelsea’s FA Cup clash at Manchester City on Saturday due to injury.

Terry was forced to miss the weekend’s 3-0 victory over Newcastle with a double muscle injury and was not deemed fit for the 1-1 draw at West Brom on Tuesday.

It is unclear if the captain will be ready for the fifth-round tie with City but manager Jose Mourinho will be hoping to have the 33-year-old fit given the uncertainty surrounding Gary Cahill.

The England international sustained a calf injury shortly before Victor Anichebe heading home an 87th-minute equaliser and he is facing a race to be fit for the Cup tie.
“Once I got the knock, I was struggling from then on,” Cahill explained after the match.

“It happened when a West Brom player went for a header and I was on the floor, and he landed just inside my knee/calf.

“It’s sore and we’ll see what it’s like later.”
