Chelsea team doctor Eva Carneiro did not report for work yesterday despite being told to do so by the Premier League club.

Carneiro, who was banned from the Chelsea bench after being criticised by manager Jose Mourinho, has not been seen at the club's Cobham training ground since the incident during the league match at home to Swansea City on August 8.

Chelsea physio Jon Fearn has continued to work during the intervening weeks, although he has not yet been reinstated to bench duties.

It is understood that Carneiro may have been acting on legal advice when she decided to stay away from work despite the club's request.

The next move is unclear, with the continued expectation among Chelsea staff that Carneiro will not resume her role as first-team doctor and could be preparing a case for constructive dismissal.

Meanwhile, Arsenal released their latest financial figures yesterday, revealing the club now has a cash reserve of £193m. The results, for the year to May 31, put the club's total turnover at £344.5m.

The club's profit increased from £4.7m a year ago to £27.4m even though the club's wage bill rose to £192m.

Match-day revenue from the Emirates brought in more than £100m.
