John Terry picked up an ankle injury against Maccabi Tel Aviv on Tuesday’s Champions League game. He was substituted in the 2nd half after the defender felt pain in his ankle.
Chelsea dealt a huge blow and is now a major doubt for Sunday’s London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Blues won against the Israeli side 4-0, and are now in strong position to be the winner of group G. Chelsea needs a draw against Porto at Stamford Bridge to led the group.
Jose Mourinho was furious at the disastrous pitch in Israel which led John Terry to injure his ankle.
Mourinho after the game said, ‘One injury yesterday on this pitch with Ramires and another today with John Terry. But I am happy that it is only two, because the pitch is really bad.’
‘I was saying before, such a beautiful stadium, such a fantastic public. They deserve a better surface because the surface was bad and dangerous.
He continued, ‘We trained on it just a little bit. We tried to protect ourselves. But by my surprise, Maccabi trained after us. Plus the warm-up before the game, the pitch was really bad.
‘Ramires slid and has a muscular injury. John has an ankle injury I think down to the pitch, and we don’t know how bad it is yet.’
Mourinho will be hoping that his skipper is fit to face Spurs on Sunday. Chelsea won against Norwich on Saturday and now face a tougher test against London rivals.
The Blues are 15th in the Premier League and Sunday’s game is must win for Jose Mourinho’s side to have any chances ending in the top 4.
