The severity of Reece James’ injury has raised questions about whether surgery is necessary, which could affect England’s World Cup preparations.
The next 24 hours will be crucial for the 22-year-old as he decides whether to start his rehabilitation with or without surgery when he sees a specialist.
He previously suffered a knee injury in Chelsea’s 2-0 away victory over AC Milan, when he was substituted late in the second half after an awkward incident involving the pursuit of winger Rafael Leao.
After the game, James stayed in Milan, delaying the initial diagnosis, but the physiotherapy department had been optimistic before the scan.
Unfortunately, the subsequent outcomes have increased the likelihood that the defender will miss the upcoming few months of play and possibly not be able to join the Three Lions in Qatar.
Graham Potter, the manager of Chelsea, told the media on Friday that the player would be seeing a specialist this weekend. There isn’t much I can add until we have that information. We’ll have to wait and see.
City of Manchester fullback With Kieran Trippier of Newcastle and Kyle Walker-Peters of Southampton in line to take Kyle Walker’s place, it is already anticipated that they will not compete in the upcoming World Cup.
N’Golo Kante is also injured for Chelsea; the midfielder experienced a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury, and Wesley Fofana is sidelined with a knee problem.
