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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
