Kalou out for two weeks

LONDON - Chelsea will be without Ivory Coast striker Salomon Kalou for two weeks after he limped off in Wednesday's League Cup quarter-final defeat to Blackburn Rovers, the Premier League leaders said.

Kalou, 24, had suffered a minor tear to his upper left thigh and was expected to be sidelined for around two weeks, the west London club said on their website.

Chelsea travel to seventh-placed Manchester City in the league on Saturday.
