Fears have already been expressed in relation to our expensive signing from Atletico Madrid, Diego Costa, picking up an injury with regards to the striking cover available.

Last night out in Budapest, one of those ear-marked as cover for Costa, picked up an injury, thereby depleting our striker stock.

Early on in the game against Ferencvaros, Didier Drogba was forced to leave the pitch after rolling over his ankle.

The Ivorian looked to be in considerable pain as he left the pitch and the initial diagnosis is that Drogba could be out for two weeks, thereby rating him as doubtful for the two opening fixtures against Burnley (a) and Leicester City (h).

Time to seek reinforcements or would that be a panic measure?
