Chelsea full-back Jose Bosingwa faces a race to be fit for the start of the season after the club confirmed he has suffered a small tear in his thigh.
Bosingwa sustained the injury in Blues' 4-0 pre-season friendly victory against Guangzhou Pharmaceutical.
A scan on Friday revealed he had torn a thigh muscle and the club have announced that he is expected to return to action in around three weeks.
Chelsea's first game of the new season sees them take on Portsmouth at Stamford Bridge, live on Sky Sports 1, on 17th August.
Portugal international Bosingwa signed for The Blues in May for Porto for a fee of £16.2million.
