Chelsea duo ruled out of Crystal Palace clash

Published 3 Comments

Chelsea duo Ashley Cole and Samuel Eto'o have been ruled out of their side's upcoming Premier League clash against Crystal Palace.

Blues left-back Cole has been out injured for the last few weeks due to a troublesome knee injury.

Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o on the other hand is out of tomorrow's clash against the Eagles with a hamstring injury.

Eto'o was forced off after just 10 minutes against Arsenal last week as the striker picked up an injury against the Gunners.

Jose Mourinho confirmed earlier today that both players would miss the game against relegation candidates Crystal Palace due to their respective knocks.

The Portuguese tactician also revealed that Eto'o could miss Chelsea's all-important Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.

Chelsea's Fernando Torres is expected to start in place of the injured Eto'o - while first choice left-back Cesar Azpilicueta will keep his place in the back four alongside John Terry, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic.
