CHELSEA: Wesley Fofana’s goal gave Chelsea a 1-0 win over Leeds United in the Premier League. Last summer, the Blues paid a high price to sign Fofana from Leicester City.
He suffered an injury after only a few games for the Blues and made his long-awaited return during Chelsea’s 2-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur. Thiago Silva was injured early in the game, and Fofana came on to replace the 38-year-old defender.
The former Leicester City defender started against Leeds United and scored the game’s only goal.
Thiago Silva, Reece James, and Mason Mount were all ruled out due to injuries. The Blues’ next game will be against Borussia Dortmund. Since the start of the season, the Bundesliga giants have been extremely impressive, and they defeated Chelsea in the first leg.
Mason Mount was ruled out of Chelsea’s match against Leeds due to injury, and he may not be available for selection against Borussia Dortmund. Mount has struggled to establish himself as a starter under Graham Potter, and he is still not fully fit.
Thiago Silva is expected to miss up to six weeks after injuring himself during Chelsea’s 2-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur.
Reece James has also been plagued by injuries since the start of the season. The right-back missed Chelsea’s game against Leeds and is expected to miss their match against Borussia Dortmund. James has established himself as one of the premier league’s best right-backs. However, he has been plagued by injuries since the start of the season.
N’golo Kante and Christian Pulisic have recently returned from injury but are still not fully fit. The two players have been training with Chelsea’s first team to stay fit after missing the majority of Chelsea’s games this season.
