Guus Hiddink: Injury update on Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and John Terry ahead of Everton


Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink says defender John Terry could make his long-awaited comeback from injury against Everton in today's FA Cup game.

The Englishman returns almost a month after suffering a hamstring injury against Newcastle United in February.

Attacking midfielder Eden Hazard and striker Diego Costa are also expected to feature against Roberto Martinez's side.

"We had a difficult loss [against Paris Saint-Germain]," Hiddink explained.

"Of course there is always disappointment, we only had two days to recover physically and psychologically.

"It's always a blow when you are knocked out, it's a setback but the players have to respond. Physically we can do that but mentally we must also be resilient.

"He [John Terry] worked rather well in the past days and he will be included in the travelling list.

"Of course, he has not practiced a lot in the last weeks and days. I will see today whether there is a reaction to yesterday's training. I would like him to travel to Liverpool.

"He [Eden Hazard] is not absent of injury.

"You can have an injury where you cannot play but you can have one where you can play but you are not fully fit.

"That also has an influence on the freshness and it's true that's a worry. He will be okay. He will be available. He's desperate to participate in the team performance.

"He [Diego Costa] went off and had some problems [but] yesterday he had rest and treatment, today the same, so I will see how he is. It's in his hip."
