Guus Hiddink provides good news on the injury front as defenders are back in squad


Defenders John Terry and Gary Cahill are back in the squad, manager Guus Hiddink revealed.

The two will make their long-awaited comeback in the Chelsea defence in time to face Tottenham Hotspur in today's derby.

The Dutchman insists that the focus is on winning all remaining games even if the Blues cannot secure a place in next season's Champions League.

"I think [John Terry and Gary Cahill will be available] because they have both participated in this week's training sessions," Hiddink told reporters.

"I think they are okay to come in to the 18, yeah.

"It's good to have them back. John was out for a longer period due to injury. Gary is a little bit the same. But it's good to have them back.

"Regarding John, maybe he's not at full 90-minute fitness, we will see in the upcoming training sessions. They have experience and it will be good to have them back in what will be a very exciting and tough game. When these boys are coming in they give extra enthusiasm to the team.

"We desperately want to win the next game, which is Spurs, and then there are massive games against Sunderland, Liverpool and Leicester after that.

"It's normal to have scrutiny from the press because you are playing in the limelight. It's not extra scrutiny. We want to fulfil our obligations now, and in the upcoming games. I cannot guarantee the result but I can guarantee that the effort will be there, and not just on Monday.

"We showed in Bournemouth we had a good attitude.

"Against Man City we played a very good 20 or 30 minutes, then they caught us on the counter, but there was nothing to be critical about regarding the attitude of the players, and there won't be in the Sunderland, Liverpool and Leicester games."
