Get well soon, Sammy

Saturday's 6-0 romp over Arsenal was certainly the highlight of the Chelsea season (so far), but it did come with a cost. Samuel Eto'o was forced to come off just ten minutes into the contest, clutching at his hamstring. Jose Mourinho has confirmed that it was a hamstring injury, though he doesn't appear to think it's a serious one:

Fortunately, Chelsea have done a fantastic job this season in managing injured players, and have generally seen those suffering with injuries returning earlier than expected. With every remaining match this season have major implications, getting Eto'o healthy and banging in goals again will be crucial to Chelsea's quest for silverware. Here's hoping this doesn't turn out to be more serious than initially thought.
