Chelsea Summer Signing Romeo Lavia Faces Season-Ending Blow With Thigh Injury

Romeo lavia

The Belgium international encounter a setback in his recorvery from an injury incurred during a match against Crystal Palace in December.

Lavia, joined Chelsea from Southampton in a £60 million transfer last summer, opted for Chelsea over Liverpool.



However, his time at the club has been plagued by a series of injuries, including a muscle injury upon his arrival and an ankle injury that sidelined him until December.

Lavia made his club debut on the 27th December against Palace but he suffered an injury in the very same match.

Chelsea’s medical staff hoped Lavia would return this month, but his setback means he has been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

It’s a bitter blow for Mauricio Pochettino, who has had to contend with a depleted squad this term.

His side languish in the Premier League, but they are through to the semi-finals of the FA Cup where they will face Manchester City.

Chelsea host Burnley at Stamford Bridge this Saturday when they resume their Premier League campaign.
