Azpilicueta was struck by Sekou Mara's boot when the striker attempted an overhead kick late in the day at Stamford Bridge and spent a lengthy amount of time receiving treatment on the pitch.

He managed to wave at fans while being stretchered off to reassure his wellbeing before being transferred directly to hospital.

Chelsea have now released a statement regarding Azpilicueta's injury, explaining: "Following a concussion injury sustained during Saturday’s game against Southampton, Cesar Azpilicueta has been discharged from hospital and is recovering well at Cobham.

"The club’s medical team are closely monitoring Cesar’s condition, adhering to the important concussion protocols in place to ensure his safety.

"Cesar observed training today, before he starts working towards returning to the pitch."

In a social media post on Monday, Azpilicueta himself had said: "Thank you all for your love and messages of support! My family and I would like to thank everyone who has been looking after me since [Saturday's] incident.

"From the Chelsea medical team, to teammates and opponents, to St Mary’s and Cleveland Hospital and all staff members and doctors: a massive thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"Now, time to recover and I will see you soon on the pitch!"
