Chelsea dealt another MAJOR injury blow with key man set for spell on the sidelines

Chelsea have suffered yet another injury setback...

Chelsea looked to have suffered a major injury blow in the form of their captain Reece James.

The defender has been hampered by injuries over the past two years.

He made just 24 appearances last season with injuries sidling him for large parts of the season.

The 23-year-old now appears to have suffered another relapse following Sunday’s draw with Newcastle.

James suffers injury setback

Reece James has picked up a fresh hamstring injury, according to Nathan Gissing.

The defender is due to have a scan later on today to determine the extent of the injury.

His last hamstring issue kept him out for 7 matches towards the end of last season.

The Blues will be hoping this is not as serious with Malo Gusto set to replace him in the team.
