Cruciate woe for Zouma


?Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma will miss the remainder of the Premier League season and Euro 2016 as a result of the knee injury he sustained during the 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

Zouma looked to have sustained a serious injury when he landed awkwardly in the second half of the game at Stamford Bridge and scans confirmed damage to his anterior cruciate knee ligament.

The 21-year-old will undergo surgery to repair the damage and as a result he will miss the remainder of the season.

As well as sitting out the final few months of the Premier League campaign, Zouma will play no part in Euro 2016.

"Scan today has shown I injured my anterior cruciate ligament. I will have surgery this week and will come back stronger," Zouma tweeted.

A statement from the club read: "Chelsea Football Club's medical team have diagnosed that Kurt Zouma sustained an injury to his anterior cruciate ligament during yesterday'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."
