Chelsea's 3-0 win over AC Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday night came at a great cost - an injury to Wesley Fofana.

The defender, who joined the Blues this past summer, had to leave the pitch after 35 minutes after he was fouled by Milan's Rafael Leao. He broke down in tears after his substitution, evidence that the injury could be bad.

Potter's concern for Fofana

Potter said he was concerned by the injury to Fofana but declined to reveal the severity as they wait for more scans.

While at Leicester, Fofana suffered a career-threatening anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, keeping him sidelined for eight months, according to Express Sport. Chelsea fans are holding their breath as they wait for news.

The Frenchman will certainly miss Chelsea's Premier League clash this weekend with Wolves and the return leg at San Siro.
