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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
