Guus Hiddink: Injury update on John Terry, Loic Remy and Nemanja Matic


Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink says defender John Terry will again be missing as the continues his recovery from an Achilles injury.

Midfielder Nemanja Matic and striker Loic Remy will also miss today's away game at Swansea City.

The Dutchman is expected to pick one from former AC Milan man Alexandre Pato and Bertrand Traore to lead the forward line with Colombia's Falcao on the bench.

"We have a few injured players so we will bring in some youngsters," Hiddink revealed.

"John Terry is still not available, he has a little problem with his Achilles like last week. He's been on the training pitch, doing his exercises, but he's not fully recovered.

"[Diego] Costa is out, as you know, Hazard is out, [Nemanja] Matic will be out and [Loic] Remy is out. Nevertheless we will bring in some youngsters as we did last week.

"I don't know when he [Loic Remy] will be recovered. It's a groin problem but it will last. When you have that problem you cannot train properly.

"It's a bit of a tendon problem in his hip [for Matic]. He trained yesterday and we'll see how he reacts to what was an intense session.

"We'll see [who will start upfront]. We had only a few strikers in December and January because apart from Diego Costa they were all injured.

"[Bertrand] Traore wasn't strongly knocking on the door at that time, and now we have strikers who must compete for the position. Who will start tomorrow? You will see tomorrow."
