Carney Chukwuemeka will be out for a long time because of a knee injury. Chelsea has revealed that the teenager has had knee surgery.
Chukwuemeka’s knee was hurt.
Had to go through surgery
Will be out of action for about six weeks
What TOOK PLACE? At the start of the new Premier League season, the youngster was doing well under Mauricio Pochettino. On Sunday, he got his first goal for Chelsea against West Ham, which helped the Blues tie the game after Nayef Aguerd scored for West Ham in the seventh minute. However, Mykhailo Mudryk had to take his place after he injured himself immediately after cutting. The Blues went on to lose a disappointing 3-1 game.
BIG PICTURE: Chukwuemeka has already had surgery to fix the problem, and it is said that he won’t be able to play for at least six months. Eight of Chelsea’s key players, such as Reece James, Trevor Chalobah, Christopher Nkunku, and Wesley Fofana, are now hurt.
WHAT THEY SAID: Chelsea released a statement that said, “Carney Chukwuemeka hurt his left knee during our game against West Ham United on Sunday.” Carney had surgery last night, and he will now start to get better. The 19-year-old will work on his recovery at Cobham with the help of the club’s medical staff.”
