Chelsea sweat on Ben Chilwell scan results amid ACL injury fears

    Chelsea and England full-back Ben Chilwell could be ruled out for the rest of the season, with the club sweating on the results of a scan for possible anterior cruciate ligament damage in his knee.

    Chilwell went down in agony in the second half of the Blues’ 4-0 Champions League group stage thrashing of Juventus on Tuesday night, after an innocuous challenge from Adrien Rabiot.

    The 25-year-old had to be helped from the pitch by Chelsea‘s medical staff, and was clearly unable to put any weight on his right leg.

    The Telegraph now writes that Chilwell is undergoing a scan on Wednesday to determine the extent of the injury, and if an ACL injury is confirmed the defender faces six to nine months out – the rest of the current season at the very least.
