Chelsea defender Gary Cahill was hospitalised this week after suffering from an illness and there has been doubts if the player will be fit to play against Tottenham on Saturday.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has now confirmed Cahill will miss the clash against Tottenham on Saturday.
“This period is not a lucky period for us,” Conte said.
“When we started training on Tuesday, he (Cahill) arrived at the training ground with a bit of a fever and our doctor preferred to bring him to the hospital and check his condition.
“It’s not a serious problem. Now Gary is getting better and is improving a lot.
“If you ask me for tomorrow, my answer is it’s very difficult.”
