Callum Hudson-Odoi Ruptures Achilles

Apr 23, 2019 12:53 PM

Callum Hudson-Odoi will miss the rest of this season after rupturing his Achilles in a 2-2 draw against Burnley.

"It's not an easy one. I think it's a serious injury. It's his Achilles tendon. I cannot tell you the extent of it. I don't know -- he'll have to have an examination, but it's not looking good," said Gianfranco Zola after the match. 

Hudson-Odoi was rumored to be leaving Chelsea for Bayern Munich this summer, although the nature of his injury may complicate his future.

Kevin De Bruyne To Miss Manchester Derby With Hamstring Injury

Apr 21, 2019 12:03 PM

Kevin de Bruyne suffered a hamstring injury against Tottenham in Saturday's win that will keep him out of the Manchester derby on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola praised Phil Foden's performance against Tottenham, with the 18-year-old set to replace de Bruyne in the lineup.

“He [Foden] is an incredibly talented player with an ability to arrive in the box, which is how he got his goal. Every time he plays he either scores goals or makes chances. Against Tottenham he showed his ability to play in tight spaces, because it is not easy to play against Dier or Wanyama or Eriksen. It was a fantastic experience for him and I trust him a lot," said Guardiola.
