- Wesley Fofana was pictured walking with crutches after Chelsea's 3-0 win over AC Milan on Wednesday
- Fofana was forced off after 35 minutes of action at Stamford Bridge and looked visibly upset when coming off
- The 21-year-old French defender signed for Chelsea in August, but fans fear his injury could see him sidelined for a significant period
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.
The 21-year-old Frenchman opened the scoring for Graham Potter's men and was on course to produce a man-of-the-match performance. Fofana was signed from Leicester City this past summer for £75 million.
After the tussle with Leao, the young defender continued playing for several minutes but couldn't continue and looked visibly upset as he headed down the tunnel.

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.
John Terry responds to Zimbabwean fan
Sports Brief earlier reported on Chelsea legend John Terry mocking a fan from Zimbabwe for correcting his English on Twitter.
Terry was praising Manchester City for beating Manchester United in the derby on Sunday, but wrote 'to good' instead of 'too good' according to the Zimbabwean fan.
Terry was unforgiving in his response and delivered a knockout blow, saying he was winning Premier League while the fan was learning English in school.
