Jose Mourinho set to rest players ahead of FA cup tie

Published Add your comment

Jose Mourinho may have his heart set on besting Bradford City and reaching the next round of the FA Cup, but he’s still prepared to rest star players in the process. The Special One revealed today that John Terry, Diego Costa and Thibaut Courtois won’t be starting the match, with Kurt Zouma, Loic Remy and Petr Cech all in line to be handed starts. Chelsea beat Watford 3-0 in the previous round, whilst Bradford bested Millwall in a replay to reach this stage. Meanwhile Mourinho has downplayed speculation surrounding Mohamed Salah’s potential exit. The Egyptian has been linked with a host of clubs this month, but his manager confirmed that he wasn’t looking to offload anyone. He's also remained coy on the ongoing speculation surrounding Juan Cuadrado. The Fiorentina ace is wanted at the Bridge, but it looks unlikely a deal will be done now.
