Marco van Ginkel: Chelsea midfielder's knee injury

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."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
