Chelsea goalkeeper, Eduoard Mendy, could miss the team’s Champions League final against Manchester City, after suffering a rib injury during the defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday.
Thomas Tuchel’s men lost 2-1 at Villa Park but still managed to finish in fourth place after Leicester City lost 4-2 at home to Tottenham.
Mendy was forced off at the break after he collided with the post and Kepa Arrizabalaga replaced him for the second half.
Tuchel admits he is ‘worried’ that Mendy could be ruled out of the Champions League final next Saturday.
“He fell on the frame [post] from the goal net when he landed and hurt his ribs.
“We are worried. We don’t know if it’s an impact injury or it’s more serious. We have to wait for the scans later.”
Mendy will undergo a scan to ascertain the level of damage.
