Callum Hudson-Odoi has confirmed he will miss the rest of the season after rupturing his Achilles during Chelsea's 2-2 draw against Burnley.
The 18-year-old appeared to sustain an injury when controlling a pass just before the 40-minute mark. He attempted to play on but continued to limp, and it quickly became apparent he would need to be replaced.
Pedro was summoned from the bench and Hudson-Odoi had to be helped by staff members as he hobbled out of the action.
Hudson-Odoi confirmed after the game he will now miss the rest of the season.
"Really gutted to end my season with a ruptured Achilles, got to work hard and try and come back stronger for next season!!!" Hudson-Odoi tweeted.
Sky Sports News understand that Hudson-Odoi will undergo surgery on Tuesday evening, having visited a specialist earlier in the day.
N'Golo Kante, who scored Chelsea's first goal in the draw, also came off with a rib injury at half-time but assistant manager Gianfranco Zola didn't expect the France midfielder to miss any further action.
"N'Golo was taken down as he was going on a counter and he fell on the foot of a player so he just had a contusion in his ribs," Zola said.
"He could not breathe properly and that is why he came out. He will be alright. It is not serious."
