Chelsea coaches and players have been sending well wishes to midfielder Marco Van Ginkel who suffered what looked like a serious knee injury during last night’s Capital One Cup win over Swindon.
The 20-year-old twisted his knee awkwardly inside the first 10 minutes of the match.
Assistant coach Steve Holland was the first to raise concerns for the Dutchman in his post-match interview.
He said: “It wasn’t perfect because we’ve got an injury to Marco which is a little bit too early to be certain but it doesn’t look good.
“He’ll have a scan tomorrow on the injury to his knee.”
Cesar Azpilicueta and Gary Cahill were among the players worried for their young team-mate.
Full-back Azpilicueta wrote on Twitter: “Happy with the victory but sad for Marco’s injury. Get well soon my friend. We are all with you.”
Cahill said: “Good win tonight but fingers crossed for Marco’s injury. Wishing him well for his scan.”
