Chelsea dealt major injury blow ahead of Bournemouth

Chelsea have suffered a big blow ahead of their return to action next week.


Chelsea’s Premier League campaign resumes on December 27 when they welcome recently-promoted Bournemouth to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues head into the game on a worrying run of form.

They are winless in their last five league outings, including losing their last three.

As result, Chelsea are 8th in the table and in danger of slipping out of the race for Champions League football.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, have had an ok start to life back in England’s top-flight, picking up 16 points from 15 games so far.

Now, ahead of the game, Chelsea have been dealt a big blow.

As reported by Simon Phillips, Wesley Fofana went off injured in a behind closed doors friendly between Chelsea and Brentford on Tuesday.

It is added that the severity of the injury is unknown, but the defender looked upset as he came off.

Kai Havertz bagged a hat trick the game that was played across three 45 minute halves.
