CHELSEA have been dealt a major injury blow after Andreas Christensen hobbled off against Manchester City.
The centre-back fluffed a clearance which allowed Gabriel Jesus to set up Raheem Sterling’s opening goal and he limped off with what looked like a hamstring problem just moments later.

A ball over the top saw Jesus in a foot race with the Dane.
But the bounce saw him flummoxed as he lunged at the airborne ball only to hook it into Jesus’ path.
The Brazilian feigned to shoot but zipped it across the box to Sergio Aguero.
But despite having the goal at his mercy, the Argentine’s touch was off AND fortunately Sterling was there to slam it in from close range.
And it was double whammy for the Blues as Christensen went down holding his hamstring.
The physios rushed on to the pitch to tend to the 25-year-old.
But they could do nothing for him as he limped down the tunnel soon after.
