Chelsea interim boss, Guus Hiddink has admitted that he will not be risking John Terry against Paris Saint-Germain if his injury is too serious.
As reported by the Daily Mail, the Chelsea captain is set to undergo a scan on Sunday to determine the extent of his injury.
Hiddink told Sky Sports following the win:
Tomorrow we’ll know how serious he is. 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 so we’ll see what will be the outcome tomorrow.
Chelsea’s number 26 was forced off during the first half after landing awkwardly after challenging Newcastle striker, Aleksander Mitrovic in the air.
It is not the news the Premier League champions would have hoped just days after losing Kurt Zouma for six months after the French defender tore his anterior cruciate ligament against Manchester United.
The Blues are set to continue their love story with French champions, PSG on Tuesday night, giving Terry little time to recover from his injury.
Branislav Ivanovic may be forced to play in a makeshift back four against the Ligue 1 side with Baba Rahman coming in at left back.
