Chelsea fans are heartbroken over Ben Chilwell ACL news

Chelsea standout left back Ben Chilwell could miss the rest of the 2021-2022 season due to an ACL injury. 

While Chelsea was fired up to record a convincing win over Juventus on Tuesday in the Champions League, that doesn’t mean the victory didn’t come without a cost. In the middle of the action, star left back Ben Chilwell with a knee injury and he was in serious pain.

Chilwell had to be helped off the field and immediately the Chelsea supporters feared the worst. Now, it’s looking like Chilwell could miss the rest of the season. It has been announced that Chilwell has suffered ACL damage. While it’s up in the air if he can play again this campaign, things aren’t looking promising.

Chelsea fans are devastated over the Ben Chilwell injury news

You absolutely hate to see this on Chilwell. He’s in the middle of a great season and he’s no question a fan favorite. That’s why so many in London and all over the world for that matter can’t believe this has happened.

Chilwell really has been fantastic for the Blues this year. Chelsea has dreams of not only winning the English Premier League this campaign, but also repeating as winners of the Champions League. As things stand, Chelsea is in first place of the EPL table, but they’ve got Man City and Liverpool right behind them, and that will be the case until May arrives.

While the hope is that maybe Chilwell can get back on the pitch this winter, Thomas Tuchel could have a big problem on his hands. This could push for the Chelsea board to go out and try and land a left back during the January transfer window.
