Chelsea has suffered another major setback after their goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is set to be out for at least two months after suffering a serious knee injury.
According to DailyMail, Chelsea doctors were attempting to assess the full extent of the issue and although substantial swelling was preventing them from making an exact diagnosis, Courtois has already been warned he faces an extended spell on the sidelines.
They also reported that Chelsea had initial fears that Courtois had suffered cruciate-ligament damage before dismissing it. Now it has been confirmed that the 23-year-old Belgian international has been ruled out of Saturday’s trip to Everton and Asmir Begovic will be the custodian for the Blues in the crucial game
Defending Champions did not start their Premier League campaign on a positive note and are looking for some inspiration to turn the fortunes in their favour. But, with this blow, Jose Mourinho’s men are set to face more misery. Apart from Courtois, Chelsea will be fielding the same line up that lost to Crystal Palace before the friendlies.
