Daily Echo: Ashley Cole Ashley Cole

Luke Shaw's England rival Ashley Cole is out of Chelsea's Premier League clash with Tottenham tomorrow with a minor knee injury.

The 33-year-old left-back, who has been second choice at Chelsea to Cesar Azpilicueta in recent weeks, suffered a lateral ligament injury in training on Thursday which will keep him out for eight to 10 days.

Cole played the first half of England's friendly with Denmark at Wembley on Wednesday night with Shaw replacing him at half time.

The pair are battling it out for a spot in Roy Hodgson's England squad for this summer's World Cup.
