Chilwell had to leave the field in Chelsea’s Carabao Cup win over Brighton in the middle of last week.
Blues manager Mauricio Pochettino’s concerns were clear. As he confirmed it was bad news based on what the medical team had told him.UFABET
Chelsea remain optimistic that both Michailo Mudrik and Moises Caicedo will be fit for Saturday’s game against Burnley. Waiting for further evaluation results. And now it is expected that Chilwell will be sidelined for around 8 months.
Whether he can reduce those times or take a longer time to return. It also depends on how he responds to the early stages of the recovery process.
A break of up to 8 weeks will mean Chilwell will have to wait until December to return, with Chelsea playing 7 matches before the last month of the year. This was a difficult time in the Premier League and the Carabao Cup Round 4 against Blackburn.
He will miss the next two England games. Which is a problem for Gareth Southgate as another option, Manchester United’s Luke Shaw, remains unavailable.
