The 24-year-old Ivory Coast international sustained a minor tear to his upper left thigh during Wednesday night's Carling Cup quarter-final at Blackburn.

Kalou played all 120 minutes of the game at Ewood Park, which finished 3-3 before Rovers prevailed 4-3 on penalties to advance to the last four.

The injury looks set to sideline Kalou for the Premier League matches against Manchester City on Saturday, Everton on Saturday week and possibly Portsmouth on December 16 as well as the Champions League visit of Apoel Nicosia
