Chelsea midfielder suffers ankle injury in Europa League clash

Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko suffered an ankle injury during AC Milan’s win over Dudelange on Thursday night.

The Frenchman lined up once again for his loan club as they aimed to secure three points in their penultimate group stage fixture of the Europa League campaign.

Bakayoko has been in good form for Milan lately and was called upon by Gennaro Gattuso to add solidity and energy to the midfield.

Milan came away with a comprehensive 5-2 victory at San Siro despite going 2-1 behind, but have been left to sweat over the condition of their ever-improving loan star.

The former AS Monaco man was helped off the pitch in visible pain as the match drew to a close following an awkward turn of his ankle.

Bakayoko turned in a strong display for his side and completed an impressive total of 11 tackles from as many attempts.

Milan and Chelsea will be keen to learn the extent of the 24-year-old’s injury in the coming days.
