Chelsea winger ruled out for the rest of the season

Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi does not expect to play again this season after suffering from what he understands to be a ruptured Achilles tendon in Monday's 2-2 draw with Burnley.

An entertaining opening period ended badly for Chelsea, as Hudson-Odoi was forced off and N'Golo Kante was then withdrawn with a knock to his ribs at half-time.

While Kante's problem is not thought to be major, it seems the same cannot be said for the 18-year-old.

Although scans are required to discover the full extent of the injury, Hudson-Odoi - who was seen leaving Stamford Bridge on crutches with his right foot in a protective boot - wrote on his official Twitter account that his season is over.


"[I'm] really gutted to end my season with a ruptured Achilles," he said. "Got to work hard and try and come back stronger for next season!"

Assistant coach Gianfranco Zola – taking the place of Maurizio Sarri for post-match media duties after the head coach was removed from the dugout for dissent in stoppage-time – also believes the injury is serious.

"It's not an easy one," Zola said in a news conference. "I think it's a serious injury. It's his Achilles tendon. I cannot tell you the extent of it. I don't know – he'll have to have an examination, but it's not looking good. I don't know if it's ruptured.
