Chelsea will assess an injury that forced Samuel Eto’o to go off after 10 minutes of the Blues’ thrashing of Arsenal.
Eto’o scored the opening goal in the 6-0 win but had to be replaced by Fernando Torres shortly afterwards.
Manager Jose Mourinho indicated that the problem is a hamstring strain, potentially making the player a doubt for next weekend’s derby at Crystal Palace and the forthcoming Champions League clash with Paris St-Germain.
Mourinho said: “Eto’o had to come off because he had a muscle injury.
“He thinks it is not a big one and has experience to know when it is not a tear, but a hamstring is still a hamstring.”
The veteran forward has been in good form – his strike against Arsenal was his third goal in as many matches.
