Chelsea Star involved in car accident after training – sources

Tiemoue Bakayoko was involved in a minor car accident on the way home from Chelsea training on Thursday, sources have confirmed to ESPN FC.

The accident took place around 3:30 p.m. BST near the Premier League champions’ Cobham training complex in Surrey, but Bakayoko did not sustain any serious injury and his chances of being involved in Saturday’s trip to the bet365 Stadium to take on Stoke City will not be affected.

It is the second car accident to occur in close proximity to Cobham in less than a month.

On Aug. 25, a 14-year-old autograph hunter suffered minor injuries after being hit by a vehicle on the public road that runs adjacent to the training ground, though no Chelsea players or staff were involved.

Due to the lingering effects of a knee injury, Bakayoko has started just three matches since joining Chelsea from Monaco for £40 million in July. But he came through 90 minutes with no ill effects in the Blues’ 5-1 demolition of Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup third round on Wednesday.

Prior to the match, head coach Antonio Conte said of Bakayoko: “He is playing very well. Don’t forget last season he finished the season with surgery in his knee. Now he is in a good physical condition.

“He is starting to adapt himself in our style of football. I am pleased because I think these are good signs for us.”

Batshuayi Trolling Rewarded As EA Sports Give Chelsea Striker Special 99-Rated FIFA 18 Card

Michy Batshuayi’s trolling of EA Sports has seen the makers of FIFA 18 hand the Chelsea striker a unique 99-rated upgrade card.

The Belgium international was less than impressed to learn that he was given an initial score of 80 by the game makers ahead of the eagerly-anticipated release of their latest offering.

EA Sports responded by telling Batshuayi that they would be willing to reconsider their marks if he continued to find the target.

The 23-year-old was quick to remind them of that fact after netting a hat-trick in a 5-1 Carabao Cup victory for Chelsea over Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.

With Batshuayi clearly not about to let the issue lie, EA Sports bowed to his pressure by producing a special card just for him.

The Chelsea man quickly conceded that his upgrade had been taken too far, as he instantly became the best player on the planet.
