On suspicion of a serious knee injury, Chelsea fear that Ben Chilwell will sit out the rest of the season.

A scan revealed anterior cruciate ligament injury in Chelsea and England full-back Ben Chilwell’s knee, which is cause for concern. Indeed, in the potentially worst-case scenario for the Blues, Chilwell may even miss the whole of the remaining 2021-22 season.

Ben Chilwell suffered a knock to the knee while playing for Chelsea recently.

After a simple challenge from Adrien Rabiot, Chilwell fell down in agony in the second half of Chelsea’s latest match.

In this Champions League group stage game on Tuesday night, Cheslea defeated Juventus by a clean 4-0 tally (football news).

As for the second-half injury, Chelsea’s medical personnel had to assist Chilwell off the pitch. And even audiences watching at home knew – the 25-year-old was clearly unable to put any weight on his right leg.

Now, according to the Telegraph, Chilwell will have a scan on Wednesday to evaluate the extent of the knee damage.

And if these medical scans confirm an ACL injury, the defender will be on the sidelines for a long time.

Experts predict he may be out for six to nine months, at the very least the remainder of the season.

If the reports verify Chelsea’s worst fears, of Chilwell missing the entire season, the player will undergo a second scan.

At this point, the diagnosis on the Chelsea star and England international may change.
