Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho confirmed the status of a pair of players ahead of Monday's match against Manchester City. When asked about Fernando Torres and Mohamed Salah, the manager ruled out Torres while leaving the possibility of a Salah debut open:
Torres "no chance" of playing Monday. Salah, "let's see", "he had winter break".— Miguel Delaney (@MiguelDelaney) January 31, 2014
I'd be shocked to see Salah take part in Monday's contest, as he hasn't played for a bit, and City currently top the league. More likely, we'll see the Egyptian on the bench for the first time when Chelsea take on Newcastle.
