With Only Days Left For The World Cup, The Champions Suffered A Heavy Blow; The French Superstar Left The Field With Injuries: Chelsea and Manchester United were tied in the fight at Stamford Bridge yesterday.
Brazilian midfielder Casemiro’s goal helped Manchester United. United dominated the first half of the match.
Meanwhile, in the 87th minute, Chelsea’s Jorginho equalized the match by scoring a penalty.
After 11 matches in the Premier League, Chelsea is fourth in the points table with 22 points and United is fifth with 21 points.
But with just weeks left for the FIFA World Cup to begin, reigning champions France are in a worrying situation.
Rafael Varane, consoled and in tears, the latest player to see their World Cup dreams in doubt with injury.
If a ludicrous schedule for a ludicrous tournament won’t protect them, will players start to protect themselves?

The injury to United’s star defender Raphael Varane left France exhausted.
Varane, the center-back of the English club Manchester United, was injured unexpectedly during the match against Chelsea.
Rafael Varane leaving early now.
Sums up Erik Ten Hag era, every player is frustrated and leaving early.

The player’s injury occurred close to an hour into the match. It is suggested that the player injured his ankle while trying to catch the ball. The footage of the star writhing in pain as soon as he fell on the field is circulating on social media.

Then United’s medical team arrived and left the field crying. In the next minute, United brought on Victor Linlofan instead.
No further details on Varane’s injury have been released. At the same time, leaving the field in tears is an indication that he is worried about losing the World Cup.
Defending champions France are a promising team this time as well. France is undoubtedly one of the best teams in the world right now, with an excellent forward line, midfield, and defense.
But the unexpected injuries of the players cause great disappointment to the team. French superstar Paul Pogba is also out due to injury.
