Chelsea defender Ivanovic suffered a hamstring injury while in international action for Serbia against Albania and is expected to be out for around three weeks.
Jose Mourinho, who is Chelsea’s coach has hinted that Anglo Nigerian defender, 18 year old Ola Aina could get to play against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
Mourinho said: “I have four solutions. I have Cesar Azpilicueta, I have the adaptation of Kurt Zouma or Ramires and I have Ola Aina.
“He is 18 years old and has never played a game in the Premier League, but he is a boy with lots of potential and he is also an option.”
