Following Reece James’ injury, there have been concerns inside the Chelsea Football Club.
On Tuesday, October 11, 2022, during the Blues’ UEFA Champions League match against AC Milan at San Siro, the right-back sustained an injury. The team has reported that James’ knee injury was more serious than initially thought.
The player will visit a specialist to determine the severity of the injury, according to Blues head coach Graham Potter.
He is scheduled to see a specialist over the weekend, so I can’t say much more until we learn that. From my standpoint, that would be conjecture. All I know is that we need to investigate the discomfort and see an expert. He stated he didn’t feel too awful when he spoke to me yesterday, but until it gets checked, you won’t know. There is no point in considering the worst-case situation; we will simply wait and see.
Graham Potter and the supporters of Chelaea will suffer a setback as they attempt to qualify for the Champions League because James is anticipated to be sidelined for at least six to eight weeks. The player’s absence will also hurt England, who are already without Kyle Walker and James and are attempting to win the World Cup for the first time since 1966.
Gareth Southgate, the England coach, will now have to decide between Trent Alexander-Arnold of Liverpool and Kieran Trippier of Newcastle, who has been filling in at left-back for the Three Lions.
