Genk forward Jelle Vossen doesn't look likely to play the Champions League match-up with Chelsea, after being ruled out for up to a month with a twisted ankle.

Vossen was injured on Sunday when Genk played Anderlecht in the Belgian Jupiler League, and while he doesn’t look likely to play against Chelsea, the club haven’t ruled out an early return with November 1st marked as his goal to come back.

Injuries to key players are piling up for Genk, with defender Nadson currently out with an ankle injury for the next four weeks.


Nadson was hurt in the side's last Champions League match-up with Bayer Leverkusen, which they lost 2-0. 

The Champions League game with Chelsea will be all important for Genk, with the side currently at the bottom of Group E in the group stages.

The Belgians have just one point from two games, but should they beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, they will be level with the English giants and back in the race to reach the last 16.

In the Belgian Jupiler League Genk are fairing better, with the side currently mid-table and having collected 13 points from nine games.
