It is unclear as to the extent of his injury but Chelsea will be hoping that the problem is not too serious as they face Manchester City in the Premier League in a top of the table clash on Saturday.

Werner scored Chelsea's only goal in 90 minutes, getting on the end of a Reece James cross to head the Blues into the lead in the first half.

"A goal opens the game very often," he added. "The second half when we scored the first goal, we had a lot of pressure after the goal."

Chelsea will face Southampton in the fourth round as they look to challenge for their first piece of domestic silverware this season.
