Arsenal defender William Saliba posted a wordless reaction on Instagram after hearing the injury news about Chelsea’s Wesley Fofana.

Fofana, 21, had a very eventful evening last night in a 3-0 win for Chelsea at home to AC Milan in the Champions League group stages.

The defender opened the scoring against the Serie A champions with his first goal for the Blues, stroking in a simple low finish inside the box after a corner.

However, the centre-back had to be withdrawn during the first-half with an injury issue.

For now, Chelsea fans are waiting patiently to hear some official confirmation from the club about the severity of the injury.

William Saliba reaction

Fofana has today uploaded a message on Instagram reflecting on the injury problem he sustained against Milan.

“From laughter to tears I’ll be back stronger soon. Be sure,” he wrote.

Following Fofana’s post on the app, Saliba replied in the comments with a prayer and a heart emoji. The link between the duo is that they’re both 21-year-old French centre-halves that played together at Saint-Etienne.

In addition, Chelsea’s Trevoh Chalobah and Mason Mount responded in the comment section with love heart emojis in support of their teammate.

Let’s keep hope that there will be good news soon about the injury because he’s already had the bad luck of a long-term issue at former club Leicester City, which did see him sidelined for a big period of time last season.

Hopefully, Fofana won’t be sat watching in the stands for any lengthy period of time.

It was gutting to see him limp off against Milan, but one saving grace may have been the performance of his replacement.

23-year-old defender Trevoh Chalobah, who’s not played a lot of football this season, looked really solid with his European display in midweek.

He proved to Graham Potter that he’s another great option in his squad to call upon.

AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli wasn’t too complimentary of Chelsea’s defence in his post-match breakdown, but the side should be delighted by their performance and rare clean sheet.
