Chelsea without first-choice full-backs for Tottenham FA Cup semi-final


Bookmark and Share

By Andrew Tuft

Friday 13 April 2012

Chelsea are likely to be without both of their first-choice full-backs to play Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Sunday after Branislav Ivanovic was suspended and Ashley Cole continues to struggle with an ankle injury, Yahoo Sports has reported.



Ivanovic was given a three-game ban for an incident involving Wigan Athletic winger Shaun Maloney that went unseen by Mike Jones, the referee for the match on Saturday between the Blues and the Latics, leaving the Serbia international to be punished retroactively by the Football Association.


Cole meanwhile missed Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Fulham on Monday, with Ryan Bertrand stepping into the breach at Craven Cottage. Cole’s injury also threatens to rule the former Arsenal defender out of next week’s Champions League semi-final with Barcelona, as the first-leg meeting between the sides will take place on Wednesday, just days after Chelsea meet Tottenham at the national stadium.
