Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was happy to see Ashley Cole impress for England in midweek.

Cole is unavailable after suffering a knee ligament injury in training on Thursday, a day after playing 45 minutes for England.

Cole has been understudy to Cesar Azpilicueta at left-back this season and faces eight to 10 days out.

"It was good for me that Ashley played a part of the game," Mourinho added.

"Unfortunately he got an injury in training and he's one of the players that is out. Lateral (knee) ligament, a little thing, but impossible for tomorrow and we would say between eight to 10 days."
