Chelsea Tammy Abraham suffered a painful hip injury during Chelsea’s 2-2 Champions League draw with Valencia on Wednesday.

Abraham had to be taken off on a stretcher at the Mestalla after an awkward collision with Valencia’s Ezequiel Garay.

When asked if Abraham had gone to hospital after the game, manager Frank Lampard said: “I’m not sure if that’s true but he’s in the dressing room now.

“The word at half-time was it looked quite severe, a bang on the hip. Then the word after the game was it might not be as severe as we first thought.”

Joe Cole said in the BT Sport studio: “That’s a sore one. He’s in a lot of pain.

“Tammy is not the type of lad, it will take a big incident for him not to play, he loves playing football.”

Glenn Hoddle added: “If it’s a hip injury then it’s going to be complicated but you just hope it’s not internal like a problem with his kidney or something like that but he did look in absolute agony.”
