Hutchinson to be assessed by Chelsea

Chelsea defender Sam Hutchinson is to have a knee problem assessed by the Blues’ medical staff.

He is currently on a season-long loan at Nottingham Forest but has not played since being taken off during the Championship side’s game against Crystal Palace on 18 September.

The affected knee is not the same one the 23-year-old previously injured.

Hutchinson announced his retirement from football in 2010 because of a knee complaint, but last year returned to Stamford Bridge after making a recovery.
