Chelsea news: Antonio Rudiger to miss rest of the season with knee injury

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger will not feature again this season due to a knee injury.

The German limped out of Chelsea’s 1-1 draw against Manchester United on Sunday – and now he is expected to undergo an operation in Italy.

Rudiger also hobbled off during the Blues’ 2-0 defeat at Liverpool earlier this month and questions have been raised as to whether he returned prematurely.

He has been one of the club’s standout performers this season and his loss will prove a blow, with Chelsea still vying for a top-four finish and Europa League glory.
