Wesley Fofana left the field hurt and holding his knee very upset before of Chelsea’s Premier League match against Bournemouth; the extent of the injury is unknown, though, and Mason Mount did not play.

Graham Potter is working hard and building strong relationships with all of the Blues players, according to Chelsea star Jorginho. Jorginho made it clear that he wants to remain at Stamford Bridge and that routine contract negotiations are taking place.
He will therefore thrive in an aggressive system, so if Chelsea can acquire him for £69 million, they should do so.
