Chelsea might have won against Fulham in a very closely fought Carling Cup Round Three match, eventually decided by penalty shootouts, but they did suffer significantly over the course of the game, losing first Daniel Sturridge and then goalkeeper Petr Cech to injury in the first half. Now we've got news on both of them, and, happily, it seems fairly encouraging:

AVB reports Cech now okay having felt dizzy at half-time. Sturridge had pain in knee but ligaments ok & he'll miss no more than 1 game. #CFC

Positive news all around, then. In Chelsea's loss to Newcastle in the third round of the Carling Cup last season, they suffered a pair of fairly major injuries while losing, so having two not-so-bad ones and winning can only be a good thing.
