Ashley Cole: Faces scan

England left-back Ashley Cole is set for a scan on a rib injury suffered in the 3-1 win at Norwich on Sunday afternoon, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed.

Cole was substituted with 15 minutes left at Carrow Road for tactical reasons, but Mourinho revealed the player later complained of a problem and so would be examined, but did not expect any major impact on his place in the England squad for next week's World Cup qualifiers.

Mourinho said: "I didn't know (that Cole was injured). We were in a difficult position before. He had something in his ribs that we need to assess, but hopefully it's fine. But yes, it was a tactical decision.

"He goes for a scan now, when we arrive (back in London), on his ribs. I hope he is fine.

"I want England to do (well), so I hope he's fine."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
