Graham Potter provides update on Fofana after being seen on crutches

Wesley Fofana sustained an injury on Wednesday night, but Chelsea manager Graham Potter has confirmed that the Blues will need to wait for the results of a scan to find out how serious it is.

Fofana scored the game’s first goal but was forced to leave near the end of the first half. The young Frenchman was seen leaving Stamford Bridge on crutches. He missed the majority of the 2021/22 season with former club Leicester due to a freak broken leg.

“We need to scan [on Thursday] and fingers crossed,” Potter explained afterwards.

“I wouldn’t want to speculate on it now. But we’re concerned and we just need to wait and get it scanned and hope for the best.

“These things happen. He’s a young guy, he’s a strong guy, we’ll help him and support him. At the moment there’s not too much to report. Fingers crossed and we’re hoping for the best.”
