Chelsea are awaiting injury news on Marco van Ginkel and Ramires, who were both injured in last night’s 2-0 win against Swindon in the League Cup.
Van Ginkel was substituted in the ninth minute after injuring his knee. The fear is that the Dutch player may be out for the rest of the season with a torn cruciate ligament. The player is undergoing a scan before the extent of the injury can be determined.
When Van Ginkel hobbled off the field in the tenth minute of the game last night, he was replaced by Ramires. However, Ramires was substituted at halftime after picking up a hip injury in the game. While his injury is not as worse as Van Ginkel, it’s possible that Ramires may be out of action too.
