Chelsea have been given a massive boost ahead of their crucial match against Manchester City this weekend, as Pep Guardiola’s side confirmed today that summer signing Benjamin Mendy has suffered an injury relating to his ACL which has ruled him out of Saturday’s clash, as per the BBC.
Mendy, who joined the Citizens from Monaco in the summer for £52M, a club-record fee for a defender, suffered the dreadful setback in his side’s 5-0 win against Crystal Palace last weekend according to the BBC, with the player having to go off in the first half as his side went top of the Premier League.
