Wesley Fofana got injured and was subbed off in the first-half of Chelsea’s Champions League clash against AC Milan.

Fofana scored the opening goal for Chelsea, but was subbed off before half-time, after awkwardly twisting his knee.

As we brought in an earlier report concerning Fofana’s state, Blues boss Graham Potter has revealed that the young defender’s case wasn’t as first feared.

The 21-year-old would be out for around four weeks and is expected to be back before the World Cup.

Potter said in his press conference ahead of Wolves game: “Wesley’s knee’s not as bad as we thought after the game, so that’s good because it was a cause for concern at the time, but it will still be a few weeks I think.

“It’s considerably better than it could be, but he will obviously be missing for a few weeks.

“It’s just a knee strain so there’s a possibility we might see him play against before the World Cup.

“It depends on how his rehab goes, I don’t want to put too much of a timescale on it, but there’s a chance of that.”
