Injury sidelines Chelsea youngster Ake

Chelsea youngster Nathan Ake will be sidelined for a number of weeks after suffering a hamstring injury.

The 19-year-old returned from international duty with the problem after playing for the Netherlands’ Under-21 side in a match against Germany.

“Ake injured his hamstring with national team and is out for a few weeks,” confirmed Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who has included him in the first-team squad for some recent matches.

He has made three appearances for the Blues this season and 10 in total.

Ake’s last outing for the senior side came against Shrewsbury in the Capital One Cup last month.
