Chelsea have been dealt a potentially devastating blow in their pursuit of the Premier League title with Ben Chilwell set for an extended spell on the sidelines.

The 24-year-old has been in fine form for Thomas Tuchel's side of late, scoring three goals in his previous six Premier League outgoings, but suffered a serious injury in the Londoners' 4-0 Champions League win over Juventus last night.

To make matters worse for Chelsea, N'Golo Kante was also forced off with a knee injury after 37 minutes played.

The French midfielder will be another big miss if set for a spell out of the side, especially with a Premier League fixture against Manchester United next on the agenda for Tuchel's side this weekend.

Providing an update on the Chelsea left-back after last night's match, Tuchel told reporters: "It worries me because he was in such a fantastic moment like Reece on the other side.

"(Chilwell) was in a lot of pain, now he feels a lot better.
