London: Chelsea were left counting the cost of their League Cup win away to Swindon after injuries to Marco van Ginkel and Ramires marred Tuesday's 2-0 victory.

The Blues eased past their third tier opponents but midfielder van Ginkel, making only his second start following his pre-season move from Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem, went down injured following an early challenge by Swindon's Alex Pritchard.

Despite trying to play on, van Ginkel then went off in the 10th minute at League One Swindon's County Ground.
