Essien injures knee, likely out Wednesday...

From the BBC:

"It was something in the knee ligament. He was in pain, I had two midfielders on the bench so I made the change immediately," said Mourinho.

"If you asked me, I would say I do not know if he will be fit for Wednesday's match against Reading."
Although Essien has been known to play through pain in the past a knee ligament injury doesn't sound good for Chelsea supporters -- especially considering the fact that he looked to be in substantial pain:

Jose might receive some help from Makele, who returned to training today, but Essien is so solid in the middle that his presence surely will be missed.
