Chelsea star Tammy Abraham has given an update on the injury he suffered during their 2-2 draw against Valencia at the Mestalla.

Abraham was substituted at half-time after failing heavily onto Ezequiel Garay.

The 22-year-old has been stretched off from the stadium and taken to the hospital.

“It’s much better, much better than when it happened,” he told Chelsea TV. “At the time I was fearful of the worst, obviously, but when I got in [to the changing room] I was able to walk again, move about. So [I’m] thankful. Hopefully, it’s not too long [out injured].

“Yeah, I hope [it’s just bruising]. I’ll have a scan tomorrow – or an X-ray, to see what the news is but hopefully it’s just bruising because at the end of the day I think it was a knee to my hip area, so hopefully it’s nothing too serious.”
