Recent signing Van Ginkel suffered a potentially serious knee problem early in the 2-0 third-round win and was replaced by Ramires, who failed to appear for the second half because of a hip injury.

The Brazilian could now miss Saturday's derby game at Tottenham while, according to Jose Mourinho's assistant Steve Holland, the prognosis for Van Ginkel could be worse.

Holland said: "It wasn't perfect because we've got an injury to Marco. It's a little bit too early to be certain but it doesn't look good.

"He'll have a scan on Wednesday on the injury to his knee, and his substitute Ramires had to go off with a muscular injury at the top of the hip in the gluteal area which was causing more discomfort as he tried to run it off.

"He'll be a major doubt for the Tottenham game at the weekend. They're the two major disappointments of the evening."

Chelsea right-back Cesar Azpilicueta later tweeted his concern for Van Ginkel, who appeared to twist his knee in the first-half incident at the County Ground.

He wrote: "Happy with the victory but sad for Marco's injury. Get well soon my friend. We are all with you."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
