Chelsea is preparing to play a match in few hours against Newcastle United in the Premier League matchday 15, but one of Chelsea’s defenders may not start the match due to an injury.
The German defender, Antonio Rudiger, shared a picture on Instagram of his foot which looks like he is suffering a nasty injury after Swansea City’s match where Chelsea won 1-0.
Antonio Rudiger, 24 years old, shared a picture of his foot that shows his left shoes to be torn out alongside with his socks during the match, which made his toes bleed. Rudiger captioned the picture with tagging Nike, the shoe manufacturer, and asked:” @Nike What is this?.”
Antonio Rudiger played the full time, 90 minutes, against Swansea City and helped Chelsea secure the victory and the three points with his header in the second half which ended the score to be 1-0 in Chelsea’s favor.
Antonio Rudiger isn’t expected to be absent in today’s match, however, he may not start if his foot isn’t fully recovered or if it was kind of a painful injury.
