Chelsea are sweating on the fitness of Reece James after the defender was substituted inside half an hour in the defeat to Man City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

James appeared to pick up the injury after just ten minutes, coming off worse despite winning a 50-50 challenge with England teammate Jack Grealish and receiving treatment on his ankle.

However, having attempted to play on he was withdrawn 20 minutes later and replaced by centre-back Thiago Silva, with Cesar Azpilicueta moving into the wing-back role in James’ place.

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel said after the match that James had ‘twisted’ his ankle, although several viewers speculated that he had in fact sprained it and therefore faced a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

Goal report that the 21-year-old left the stadium with the injury wrapped in bandaging.
