Bakayoko Car accident: Photos of crashed Tiemoue Bakayoko’s Car

Tiemoue Bakayoko reportedly crashed his car on the way home from Chelsea training on Thursday.

The midfielder, who earns £110,000 a week according to the Daily Star, appeared to abandon his Mercedes-Benz G-Class in a bush.

A report by The Mirror claimed that the collision occurred around 3.30pm, with Bakayoko apparently only suffering minor injuries.

Judging by these images, Bakayoko is a lucky boy.

Although his car does not look overly mangled, one imagines he must have seriously lost control to end up in such a position.

Presumably he’ll be thanking his lucky stars that he hit a bush, rather than another vehicle, or worse another person.

For a further official confirmation, a statement from Surrey Police confirmed the incident, and it read as follows:

“Surrey Police attended Blundel Lane in Oxshot around 4.40pm following a one vehicle collision. The driver did not suffer any injuries. There were delays for drivers while the vehicle awaited recovery.”

Bakayoko cost Chelsea £40m, per The Mirror, when he signed from Monaco in the summer.

He made his sixth Blues appearance on Wednesday night in the 5-1 thrashing of Nottingham Forest.

The 23-year-old scored his first Chelsea goal earlier this month in another one-sided encounter at Stamford Bridge where Antonio Conte’s men battered Qarabag 6-0 in the Champions League.

Phil Neville on Chelsea: I’d choose Diego Costa over Alvaro Morata

CHELSEA would be better off with Diego Costa in their side over Alvaro Morata.

That is according to pundit and former Manchester United defender Phil Neville.

Costa has finally been granted his wish of returning to Atletico Madrid, with the player set to move in January when the transfer window re-opens.

The forward has been in exile since the end of last season after falling out with Blues boss Antonio Conte.

But as the Spaniard heads for the exit door, Neville admits Costa would be his pick of the duo.

“I would rather have Costa than Morata in my team at this moment in time, to be honest with you,” Neville told Sky Sports show The Debate.

“I think he is better suited to the English game.

“Morata has great potential, but if you were an opposition manager, you would rather be facing Morata than Costa.

“He is a fantastic player, he scored goals and is someone you would think, ‘I’d love him in my team.'”

Despite Neville admitting he would favour Costa in his side, the former England defender did admit Morata’s finishing ability impresses him.

“Morata is different, he thrives off crosses,” he added.

“Costa, you can stick him up there on his own, he will take on the whole of the back four, from the left back to the right back to the centre back.

“He will try and bully them all.

“Whereas Morata is a little bit more cute in his movements, he thrives a little bit more on crosses, he keeps it pretty simple outside the box.

“But the minute he comes into the box, I actually think he is a better finisher than Costa.

“But if you were asking me as a central defender, I would hate to play against Diego Costa, I really would.”

Morata will be hoping to continue his impressive start to life in England when Chelsea take on Stoke City this weekend.
