Ben Chilwell told his fans on social media that he would do ‘everything’ to return to football after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury against Juventus.

The 24-year-old injured his right knee while he was challenging Adrian Rabiot for the ball during Chelsea’s game against Juventus.

Chilwell shared a picture of himself holding his knee, writing with the caption: ‘It’s so frustrating to be hurt in a moment like this when I’m really enjoying my football and playing for this team.

I will try my best to get back on the pitch as soon as possible. Thanks for all the messages of support.’

Thomas Tuchel confirmed Chilwell’s injury status, claiming that the 24-year-old had suffered a ‘partial injury to his ACL’.

Tuchel said: ‘He has a partial injury to his ACL and the decision is to treat it conservatively and the next six weeks will really tell the story whether he makes it through and completely within this six weeks or after this six weeks’ expected to be available. After that he needs surgery.

The initial six-week period will exclude Chilwell for the rest of the year and allow him to miss Chelsea’s next 11 games, starting with Sunday’s clash against Manchester United.

Surgery will likely rule out Chilwell for the rest of the season but Tuchel said: ‘I only care about six weeks now. We are very positive because their body’s first reaction is very positive.

‘Hopefully it stays like that and now everyone’s focus is on the next six weeks, getting him back on the pitch and playing him.

“It is a post-exam decision and it is a very responsible decision so there is no rush and no pressure. This is the proper way to do this. So now the focus is on the next six weeks.

‘Maybe we don’t need to talk about it’ [in six weeks] Because everything is fine. It would be best case and worst case and there might be some shade of gray in between. we have to wait.

‘It doesn’t help if we now start talking about worst case scenarios because there is also a best case scenario and the decision is made. Will give direction next week and if there is any update we will update you but that’s what we have for now.
