Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel will miss the FA Cup final against Portsmouth on May 15 after undergoing minor knee surgery.
The Nigerian, who will also miss the final Barclays Premier League game of the season against Wigan on Sunday, has not played for three weeks because of the injury.
"John Mikel Obi has undergone minor knee surgery and will take no part in Sunday's final Barclays Premier League match nor the FA Cup final," read a Chelsea statement.
"The operation is due to an injury suffered when fouled by Bolton's Kevin Davies last month and subsequently led to Mikel's early substitution at Tottenham the following match."
