Chelsea defenders John Terry and Ashley Cole have been passed fit for Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final tie with Tottenham Hotspur.
Terry (cracked ribs) and Cole (ankle) were both doubts but have trained this week. Right-back Branislav Ivanovic misses the game as he begins a three-match suspension.
Ryan Bertrand (calf) and Oriol Romeu (illness) are also out, while Younes Kaboul’s knee injury means Spurs manager Harry Redknapp only has two fully fit first-team centre-backs.
Ledley King’s chronic knee problems could rule him out as he struggles to play more than once a week and he started the 2-1 defeat by Norwich City on Monday, while Michael Dawson is sidelined for the season with ankle ligament damage.
Midfielder Scott Parker is likely to be available after he missed the loss to the Canaries, but playmaker Niko Kranjcar has picked up a knee injury that rules him out of the trip to Wembley.
