Chelsea forward Pedro Rodriguez is a doubt for the Champions League second leg clash with Paris Saint-Germain. The former Barcelona star was forced off after just seven minutes in the 2-1 win over Southampton on Saturday 27 February after picking up a hamstring problem.
Guus Hiddink's side travel to Norwich City on Tuesday 1 March before taking on Stoke City the following Saturday. Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, the Blues then welcome PSG to Stamford Bridge on 9 March before heading to Merseyside for their FA Cup quarter-final clash with Everton.
Ahead of that busy schedule, Hiddink is hopeful Pedro will be fit for the visit of the Ligue 1 champions, but is wary of rushing the 28-year-old back for the trip to Goodison Park.
"We will see. We now have a tight schedule," Hiddink said, West London Sport report.
"PSG is just before the Everton game. I think he might be fit at that time but then I don't know if he is fit again for the Everton game [if he plays against PSG]."
Chelsea looked to be heading towards their 10th league defeat of the season after Shane Long capitalised on Baba Rahman's error to give Southampton a 1-0 lead at St Mary's. Diego Costa missed a golden opportunity to move his side level after a fine delivery from Eden Hazard but the away side drew level with 15 minutes remaining. Fraser Forster, having previously gone 667 minutes without conceding, misread Cesc Fabregas' cross and was rooted to the spot as the Spaniard's delivery crept into the far corner.
In the 89th minute, Branislav Ivanovic met Willian's corner with a firm header to complete the comeback, moving Chelsea up to 11th.
