Chelsea boss Graham Potter has explained Ben Chilwell’s hamstring injury in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Dinamo Zagreb was frustrating.
Potter said: “Because he didn’t play at the weekend, there was a thought he could play tonight and have enough time to recover for the weekend. So we’ve tried to manage him, but he’s never played three games in a week.
“He’s had to have a build-up that I think has been good for him. That’s why it’s very frustrating. It’s a blow for us and a blow for him.
“Sadly, he won’t be the only one that is affected in this period because October was incredibly challenging in terms of the games we had to play. But it is what it is.”
