Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole leaves the field after picking up the injury


Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole will be out for at least a fortnight after injuring his hamstring in his side's FA Cup win over Manchester United on Monday, interim manager Rafael Benitez revealed.

Cole pulled up mid-way through the first half of the quarterfinal replay at Stamford Bridge and was replaced by Ryan Bertrand after hobbling off.

"With this kind of injury, it'll be at least two weeks," said Benitez, who also revealed that centre-back Gary Cahill will be on the sidelines for "another 15 days at least" due to a knee complaint.

Chelsea won the game 1-0 through a 49th-minute Demba Ba volley to set up a semifinal meeting with Manchester City on April 14.
