BOTH Gary Cahill and David Luiz have been ruled out of tomorrow's FA Cup Final at Wembley.
The defensive duo are both still recovering from hamstring strains – with Luiz (pictured) closer to recovery after picking up his muscle strain in the semi-final win against Tottenham three weeks ago.
Cahill had already written off his chances of playing as he collected his unwanted injury only a week ago in the epic at Barcelona and is thinking only of getting fit in time for the Champions League final in Munich on May 19 when John Terry is suspended.
“They are progressing,” said Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo. “They're getting better, but they won't be available for the final tomorrow. We'll have to see how it goes, but hopefully next week, they might be able to start training with the team.”
The central defenders are the only players ruled out for the showpiece, with everyone else available for the selection.
