Chelsea Football Club’s medical team have diagnosed that Kurt Zouma sustained an injury to his anterior cruciate ligament during Sunday’s Premier League game against Manchester United.
Kurt will undergo surgery in the next 48 hours and is expected to be out for approximately six months.
Zouma also tweeted, “Scan today has shown I injured my anterior cruciate ligament. I will have surgery this week and will come back stronger.”
The France centre-back has made 32 appearances for Chelsea this term.
The Blues came from behind to earn a point courtesy of Diego Costa’s 91st-minute equaliser after Jesse Lingard had given Man-U the lead in the match played at Stamford Bridge.
