Dislocation downs Duff

Chelsea FC's Damien Duff has dislocated his shoulder and is doubtful for the second leg against AS Monaco FC.

Chelsea FC winger Damien Duff dislocated his shoulder for the second time this season today after a fall in training.

'Problem assessed'
The Republic of Ireland midfield player, who recently returned to full training after a virus ruled him out of Chelsea's last three games, was sidelined for three and a half weeks when he first dislocated the shoulder against Fulham FC in December. A Chelsea statement said: "He is having an assessment made of the problem before deciding what rehabilitation is for the best."

Duo return
The 25-year-old Duff sat out the first leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final against AS Monaco FC, a 3-1 defeat in France, and is now a major doubt for Wednesday's return fixture at Stamford Bridge. However, manager Claudio Ranieri may be able to call on Carlo Cudicini and Glen Johnson after they returned to training.
