EPL: Chelsea get positive Fofana update after initial tests on knee injury

Wesley Fofana’s knee injury is better than initially feared after the first set of tests returned positive results.

The defender suffered a knee injury in a collision with Rafael Leao in the 38th minute of Chelsea’s 3-0 home win against AC Milan, as his night ended in frustrating fashion having scored his first goal for the club earlier in the match.

There is hope that Fofana could return before the World Cup, with Chelsea’s final match before the tournament taking place away to Newcastle on November 12.

The centre-back is likely to miss this weekend’s clash against Wolves and the away match at San Siro against Milan next week.

Fofana was seen leaving Stamford Bridge on crutches on Wednesday night, with his right knee in a brace as there were worries he may have suffered a serious injury.

Speaking in his post-match press conference after Chelsea’s victory over Milan, Blues boss Graham Potter admitted he was unsure how bad it would prove to be for Fofana.

‘We’ll have to scan it tomorrow and see how he is but there’s nothing to report at the moment,” Potter said.

“That’s the one disappointing thing about the evening so we have our fingers crossed. We’re concerned but I don’t want to speculate on it now.

‘These things happen. He’s a young guy and a strong guy but we’ll support him.’
