Chelsea attacker out of crucial clash with Leicester City as rumours circulate of hamstring injury

Posted by

Chelsea attacker Kai Havertz is reportedly missing tonight’s crucial clash with Leicester City having sustained a hamstring injury in the FA Cup final.

Though Chelsea were defeated by Leicester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday, and will still be hurt by it, they cannot afford to fall below their usual standards again tonight.

With Liverpool making a late surge towards Champions League qualification, the loser of tonight’s game is in serious jeopardy of missing out on the top four.

In Chelsea’s case, they need to win, but unfortunately, they’ll have to do it without Kai Havertz, who has not even made the bench for tonight’s game.

This comes after the German international was spotted in the tunnel at Wembley grasping his hamstring.

Kai Havertz is escorted to the Chelsea dressing room in evident discomfort.

News has circulated on social media this evening that the injury sustained in the final on Saturday is the reason that he is not involved in the game tonight.

Thomas Tuchel will be sweating on Havertz’s fitness ahead of the Champions League final.

After a slow start, the former Bayer Leverkusen man is just hitting his stride. Losing him for the rest of the season would be a huge blow for Chelsea.
