Chelsea striker Demba Ba appears to be trying to accelerate his first-team return by looking for a way around his broken nose.
That appeared to rule him out of this weekend's game with Wigan, but the Senegal international tweeted to say he was looking to have a mask fitted.
With an accompanying picture of him on a plane, he wrote: "Me and the club docteur in the place (sic) going to milan to get a mask done."
Should Ba have a mask fitted to his face, he would not be the first. His team-mate and captain John Terry wore one against Valencia last season owing to a broken cheekbone, while Paul Gascoigne used one to protect a facial injury while a Lazio player.
Chelsea were unable to comment on Ba's progress or how long he may be out for when contacted.
