Guus Hiddink has confirmed that John Terry is unlikely to be fit to feature for Chelsea in Wednesday’s Champions League showdown with Paris Saint-Germain at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues captain has been out of action since the 5-1 Premier League win over Newcastle United last month due to a hamstring injury.

Although the veteran defender has not suffered a setback in his recovery, Hiddink admitted that the former England skipper will probably miss Wednesday’s Champions League last-16 second leg in west London.

Speaking to Chelsea’s website, Hiddink said: “We’d like to have all our defensive players available, but I don’t think John will make Wednesday.

“For the time being there has not been enough development to put him on the list on Wednesday. It’s not worse – he can run, but he still cannot go into a longer stretch which you do when you accelerate – there he must be careful.”

The Blues interim boss was somewhat more optimistic about the chances of Diego Costa being back available for selection after the striker was sidelined with a tendon injury.

The manager continued: “He had a little bit of a problem with a tendon. He could have started, to be honest, but then the risk was there and afterwards I might be left saying, ‘Why did I risk him?'”

Chelsea, who drew 1-1 with Stoke at Stamford Bridge on Saturday in the Premier League, head into their game with PSG trailing the Ligue 1 champions 2-1 after the first leg in Paris last month.
