It was a bitter-sweet night for Chelsea defender Wesley Fofana against AC Milan on Wednesday night.

Fofana scored his first goal for Chelsea, which opened the lead for the hosts against AC Milan in the Champions League.

However, shortly before half-time, Fofana was involved in a collision with Rafael Leao and seemed to have hurt his knee with the way he landed.

The Frenchman looked in agony but initially tried to continue playing, before signalling to Chelsea’s bench that he couldn’t carry on.

Fofana took to his Instagram after the game and put up a post of him celebrating and him leaving the pitch.

He captioned it: “From laughter to tears. I’ll be back stronger [soon]. Be sure.”

Speaking about Fofana’s injury, Potter said after the game: “We’ll have to scan it [on Thursday] and see how it is. I wouldn’t want to speculate on it now but we’re concerned and hope for the best.

“We’ll support him but we don’t know yet, we’ll get the scan results tomorrow. Fingers crossed. There’s nothing to report at the moment but it was the one disappointing thing of the evening.”
