Chelsea's injury update: Chukwuemeka doubtful for Brighton match
Posted : 26 September 2023
Chelsea announced an injury status on Carney Chukwumeka, an English-Nigerian midfielder, ahead of their Carabao Cup match against Brighton & Hove at Stamford Bridge.
The young midfielder hasn't played since facing West Ham United on August 20 due to a knee injury.
Since then, he's been absent for five of Chelsea's matches, including games against Luton Town, Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth, Aston Villa, and AFC Wimbledon.
The injury, which required surgery, occurred during the West Ham game, leading to his early exit.
Currently, the 19-year-old is on the path to recovery, having resumed limited training with the team.
However, he may not be fit for the upcoming Brighton & Hove match, as he hasn't returned to full training yet.
His injury was ill-timed, especially since he was cementing a place in Chelsea's first team, even scoring in the match he got injured.
