Kovacic and Willian forced off in Liverpool Clash
Chelsea face an anxious wait over the fitness of midfielder Mateo Kovacic after the Croatia international went off injured in Tuesday’s FA Cup clash with Liverpool.
Kovacic appeared to be tripped slightly by Reds youngster Neco Williams, before his foot was stood on by Sadio Mane as the Liverpool pair attempted to win the ball from him.
The 25-year-old initially carried on, but went down again off the ball moments later and had to be helped from the pitch. He was replaced by Mason Mount.
Later on, Willian sat himself on the turf with an unknown problem less than five minutes into the second half, with Brazil-born Jorginho coming on in his place.
