Roberto di Matteo suffered a double fracture of his left leg in last night's shock UEFA defeat to St Gallen, his club Chelsea have confirmed.

Di Matteo underwent X-rays after limping off after a tackle from St Gallen's Daniel Imhof.

The Swiss-born Italian international has had an operation in Switzerland and will stay there for at least three days.

Assistant manager Gwyn Williams said: "Given what's happened he's as well as can be expected."

Chelsea lost the match 2-0 and crashed out of the competition 2-1 on aggregate.
