Chelsea have won tonight, but the air was sucked out of the stadium moments before the final whistle as Ben Chilwell went down clutching his hamstring.
It was almost the final kick of the ball – he came that close to making it to full time. But instead he looked in serious pain, and now looks certain be out for a while. He joins Reece James, N’golo Kante, Kovaci, Fofona others, on the sidelines.
It seems like a horrible repeat of Chelsea’s last year’s winter period, where Tuchel lost the same pair of players. That indirectly cost then trophies and it may cost then more now.
However, Graham Potter is yet to give a full analysis on the injury at the time of filing this report, Potter only hinted that the club will have to wait for the scans tomorrow or the day after to determine the seriousness of Chillwell’s injury
Consequently, a month would be a minimum for the English left footer as this may mean no World Cup for Chilly.
