Chelsea dealt potential injury blow during Leicester City clash

Chelsea run riot vs Leicester

Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off played out a short time ago.

Said game would see Chelsea and Leicester face off. It was Chelsea who headed into the game in much better form, and that showed during the clash, as Chelsea ran riot over the Foxes en route to a comfortable 3-0 win.

Antonio Rudiger opened the scoring after 14 minutes from a corner:

N’Golo Kante then doubled the Londoner’s lead after 28 minutes, following up a marauding run with a long-range strike:

Then, to put the result beyond doubt, substitutes Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic combined in the 71st minute to make it 3-0.

On an otherwise positive day for Thomas Tuchel and co., there was one rather big blow.

This came towards the end of the tie when Jorginho went down and was forced off

In terms of the potential nature of the injury, there are unconfirmed rumours that BT Sports would claim during the clash that Jorginho mouthed the word ‘hamstring’ to Kante after going down, though this is obviously not an official diagnosis, which we will likely get from Tuchel in his post-match press conference.

Chelsea, though, will be desperately hoping that it is not anything serious as they have two huge games next week, vs Juventus on Tuesday and then against Manchester United on Sunday.
