UEFA Champions League

Big Blow to Chelsea as Star Player Suffers Injury Ahead of EPL New Season Start

Chelsea has once again been crowned the UEFA super cup winners after a great victory against Villarreal, a match that went up to the penalties level that saw Kepa prove his worth in the team after saving two penalties.

The English giants thrashed Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League finals last season to carry this award while Villarreal emerged victorious against Manchester United through penalties after a 1-1 draw in the full time.

During the match, Hakim Ziyech scored the opening goal in the first half for the blues, only for Gerald Moreno to equalize minutes after to make it 1-1 as they headed into the extra time.

Thomas Tuchel's men have however suffered a huge blow ahead of the new season start following the star player's shoulder injury that happened earlier on in the first half. Goal scored Ziyech who most of last season spent his time with these injuries will now miss the opening match on Saturday against Crystal Palace as well as some few other matches that will follow.
