Cahill started and played all 90 minutes of Community Shield against Arsenal on Sunday after suffering a broken nose last week in an International Champions Cup match against Barcelona.

Cahill did not wear a mask during the game, but he was hit on the nose and started bleeding again. Given that he played through it Sunday, he is expected to start the Premier League opener next weekend against Swansea City.

Cahill (nose) will be available for the Community Shield against Arsenal on Sunday, manager Jose Mourinho confirmed Friday.

Cahill suffered a broken nose Tuesday against Barcelona in the International Champions Cup, and while he will likely have to play with a mask, he's been cleared to participate in the match. Given the lower importance of the match, it wouldn't be overly surprising if Kurt Zouma got the start alongside John Terry, giving Cahill more time to recover in preparation of the Premier League opener Aug. 8 against Swansea City.

Cahill suffered a nose injury during Tuesday's International Champions Cup match against Barcelona, and there is a concern it is broken, Sky Sports reports.

Cahill was hit by the goalkeeper as he connected on a headed goal, and he immediately went down to the ground clutching his face. He was removed from the game after being examined on the field, and if he requires surgery to correct the issue, he'll likely have to play with a mask and could certainly miss the Community Shield on Sunday against Arsenal.

Cahill's flick pass was headed in by Branislav Ivanovic during Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Cahill took a pass from John Terry to set up the goal, making it a three-defender goal-setup for the Blues. Cahill had been losing playing time to Kurt Zouma of late, but after Tuesday's performance, he could be back in the starting XI for Saturday's match against Burnley.

Assistant first team coach Steve Holland reiterated after the game that Cahill was simply being rested after appearing in each match over the holiday period, and he will likely be back in the starting XI next Saturday against Swansea City.

Manager Jose Mourinho confirmed Friday that Cahill is fit for Saturday's match against Newcastle after suffering a head injury Wednesday against Tottenham.

Cahill had to come off at halftime after a collision with Jan Vertonghen and was replaced by Kurt Zouma, who would likely get the start if Mourinho decides to rest his starting centreback.

Manager Jose Mourinho confirmed after Wednesday's game against Tottenham that despite coming off at halftime with a head injury, Cahill did not suffer a concussion.

Mourinho noted that Cahill was "a little bit afraid of heading the ball," which is obviously an important aspect of a centreback's game, so he removed him. Kurt Zouma replaced Cahill against Spurs and could be a candidate to do the same if Cahill has to miss Saturday's match against Newcastle.
