Chelsea's striker problems continue.

Chelsea's striker woes have been the hot topic of discussion over the past 24 hours after on loan Romelu Lukaku produced a dominant display for Everton last night.

Now they have taken another new twist in unfortunate circumstances.

Jose Mourinho picked Fernando Torres up front in their must-win Champions LEague encounter with Steaua Bucharest, only to see him go down injured on 11 minutes.

The Spaniard appeared to be suffering a knee injury and was replaced by new signing Samuel Eto'o.

It is uncertain early on as to the severity of the problem.

How bad could this be for Chelsea?
