Kalou Out For Two Weeks With Thigh Injury

Salomon Kalou

Bad news for all Chelsea fans as striker Salomon Kalou will miss up to two weeks because of a thigh injury he sustained in Thursday’s Carling Cup loss to Blackburn.

The Ivory Coast international striker tore the muscle in his upper left thigh in the quarter-final clash that ended 3-3 after extra time and 4-3 to the Rovers on penalties.

Kalou will now be forced to miss Chelsea’s visit to Manchester City this weekend, the home clash with Everton on December 12 and potentially even the following match with Portsmouth as well as the Champions League fixture with Apoel Nicosia next week.
