Chelsea defender Gary Cahill is a doubt for FA Cup semifinal against Spurs after spending two nights in hospital with mysterious illness, Matt Law from The Indipendent reports tonight.

“It is understood Cahill was admitted to hospital on Tuesday after training and was only released on Thursday, following treatment and tests, putting his participation in the semi-final tie in doubt,” Law writes in his exclusive report.

“Cahill first started to feel ill on Monday, the day after playing in Chelsea’s Premier League defeat to Manchester United in which Conte’s plans had been hit by illness and injury” he continues.

Marcos Alonso missed the United game with a stomach bug that Diego Costa and Victor Moses played with, while goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois injured his ankle in a basketball promotional shoot.
