Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell to undergo knee surgery; set to miss rest of season

Must Read

Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell is likely to miss the rest of the season as the club has confirmed he will undergo knee surgery.

The England left-back, 25, suffered anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) damage during Chelsea’s 4-0 Champions League win against Juventus on 23 November.

Chelsea initially decided to let the defender begin rehabilitation work in the hope he could avoid surgery.

He has three goals and one assist in six Premier League games this season.

An initial scan revealed Chilwell had sustained a partial ACL tear, and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said at the time “the next six weeks will tell the story” on whether he would require surgery.

A club statement said: “Unfortunately Ben was unable to progress and so collectively the decision has been taken to proceed this week with a surgical repair.”
