Chelsea have suffered a double injury blow ahead of their Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain after John Terry and Oscar suffered injuries on 13 February. The former limped off in the first-half during their 5-1 win over Newcastle United and it will be a cause for concern for Guus Hiddink following the recent injury to fellow central defender Kurt Zouma.
According to the Daily Mail, the Brazilian midfielder suffered the injury prior to the match and failed to make the match day squad due to a problem on his calf . The absence of Terry and Oscar will be a blow for the Blues as they face a crunch Champions League tie against PSG, who are unbeaten in Ligue 1 this season.
Terry's injury will be a big loss for the Chelsea manager, who is already without Zouma after the French defender suffered a major knee injury during their 1-1 draw against Manchester United and has been ruled out for at least six months. Gary Cahill is the only fit senior defender in the squad at the moment with January signing Matt Miazga the only other alternative ahead of their trip to the Parc des Princes, but he is not yet fully match fit.
Hiddink has indicated that the clash against PSG could come too soon for Terry, who is set to have a scan to find out the extent of the injury, which was caused after a clash with Magpies striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.
"Tomorrow we will know. He has, hopefully, a small muscular problem, but tomorrow we will know how serious it is," the Dutch manager said, as quoted by Sky Sports.
"Midweek is already Tuesday and we have just two days to recover. I think teams need at least three days but we don't have it, so we will see what will be the outcome tomorrow," he added.
