Huge Chelsea blow: Key player goes off injured vs Leicester

http://ift.tt/2CYcu3q

Chelsea have been dealt a big injury blow with Gary Cahill coming off just after the 30-minute mark and being replaced by Andreas Christensen.

The Blues have been held to a goalless draw at the break with Leicester City, with both sides having good opportunities to take the lead at Stamford Bridge.

The incident

The Chelsea captain was forced to pull up, after attempting to catch Leicester forward Jamie Vardy.

Cahill reluctantly went off and was replaced by the Dane Christensen, who much to the surprise of the Stamford Bridge faithful wasn’t playing from the off.

One telling sign though is that David Luiz’s future at Chelsea appears to be over, with the Brazilian no longer even the club’s reserve central-defender.

Luiz is on the bench this afternoon but manager Antonio Conte opted for Christensen instead.
