Chelsea defender Cahill to miss FA Cup semi against Tottenham

Xinhua, April 21, 2017 Adjust font size:

Chelsea defender Gary Cahill, who was admitted to hospital on Tuesday for treating a kidney stone, will miss Saturday's FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said Friday that it is too soon for the England center back to return to action.

"He (Cahill) arrived at the training ground with a bit of fever," Conte said. "Our doctor preferred to bring him to the hospital and to check his condition."

Tottenham are four points behind the Blues at the Premier League with six games remaining.
