The England left-back appeared to get a kick on his ankle after a challenge from team-mate Claude Makelele.

He stayed down for a long time before being helped off the field by Chelsea staff, although did then gingerly begin running again to try and overcome the problem.

Cole had the injury to his right ankle sprayed and then strapped up by medical staff and then tried to run the injury off by taking part in a training match.

But he did not appear to be moving freely and his session ended before that of his colleagues.

Fellow England left-back Wayne Bridge could step in if Cole does not manage to prove his fitness.
