Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel confirmed on Friday that Chelsea left wing-back Ben Chilwell will be out for the next six weeks which will see him miss Chelsea’s next 11 games.
“Ben is out,” Tuchel said. “He has a partial injury of his ACL [anterior cruciate ligament] and the decision is to treat it conservatively.
“The next six weeks will tell the story if he makes it and will be fully available, or if he needs surgery after that.”
Chilwell has now revealed he will do everything he can to get back on the pitch as soon as possible.
Chilwell posted on Instagram: “Very frustrating picking up an injury in a moment like this when I am really enjoying my football and playing in this team.
“I will do everything I can to get back on the pitch as soon as possible. Thank you for all the messages of support.”
