Chelsea fear losing Michy Batshuayi for a considerable period, and even more so Borussia Dortmund after the Belgium striker appeared severely injured in their game at the weekend in the Bundesliga.

Dortmund were involved in the Revier derby, losing 2-0 but more important to them will be how long they will lose Batshuayi for. Initial reports said he had broken his leg and would be looking beyond the World Cup for a return to football action.

However, in less than 24 hours,word emerged that the former Marseille forward had not suffered a broken left ankle as earlier thought. According to top Belgium journalist, Kristof Terreur on Twitter, Batshuayi may have torn a ligament.

Although not sure what ligament exactly has been damaged, the Chelsea striker on loan at Dortmund will likely be out for a while.

This is not refreshing news to anyone connected to Chelsea or Dortmund, after the striker began showing his true ability in Germany scoring a considerable number of goals to help Dortmund rekindle their Champions League qualification ambitions.
