Chelsea are facing an injury to Reece James, who was knock out in the 2-0 Champions League win over AC Milan on Tuesday.

James suffered a second-half injury that was substituted in the 62nd minute. With Cesar Azpilicueta coming on as his place, before Chelsea beat Milan 2-0 to lead the group ufabet.

After the game, Graeme Potter, the team’s manager said. “We hope he’s okay. We need to wait 24 to 48 hours, we will know more after that.”

Previously, Chelsea had a problem with the game’s injury problems, which is Wesley Fofana, the French defender. 

For their next fixture, Chelsea will visit Aston Villa in the Premier League. Sunday October 16.

Chelsea cruised to the win in Milan to move top of Group E though, with Jorginho on target from the penalty spot and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang claiming his third goal in as many games.

Boss Potter oversaw his fourth win in a row with the Blues, who saw their night eased by ex-Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori’s red card.

Potter remained neutral in his view of Tomori’s dismissal while Milan boss Stefano Pioli hit out at the decision, pulling no punches.

“The red card and penalty, from where I am I can’t really see too much,” said Potter.

“If he’s brought him down he’s brought him down. I haven’t seen it back, but clearly that’s a big moment for us.
