Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Gary Cahill did not suffer a concussion during Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

The England international was substituted at half-time after a heavy collision with Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen in the opening half in west London.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho revealed that Cahill was “OK” and that his withdrawal was simply a precaution.

“He’s OK, he has no concussion and isn’t in need of special care,” said Mourinho. “He was just a little bit afraid of heading the ball.

“It was a good opportunity for Kurt Zouma, under pressure.

“Today was a real test and I’m so happy with his evolution since he arrived. He will be a big player for Chelsea for many years.”

Chelsea will be without Nemanja Matic when they travel to Newcastle United this weekend after the midfielder picked up his fifth booking of the season against the north London side.
