Reece James, Graham Potter, everyone hoping for good news about knee injury

Fingers crossed

Reece James was back out on the pitch — in a training bib but no other extra or protective accouterments — after the final whistle on Chelsea’s 2-0 win over AC Milan at the San Siro on Tuesday night, and that’s hopefully a good indication that the young right back’s knee injury, which forced him off just past the hour mark, isn’t a severe one.

It’s certainly a better sight than the crutches on which Wesley Fofana left last week’s match against AC Milan, though head coach Graham Potter isn’t expecting a proper diagnosis until tomorrow at the earliest.

“Reece, we’re hoping he’ll be ok. [We’ll need] 24-48 hours because it’s too early to tell you anything more than that.”

Until then, the best we can do is hope for the best, which is what James himself is doing as well.

“Fingers crossed it’s not a bad one. Love for all the messages, I appreciate you all.”

Please find all the fingers, and cross them right now. And then cross them again, just to be sure.
