A Chelsea club statement read in part, “The operation was successful but it is too early for an accurate assessment of his condition.”

Backup keeper Carlo Cudicini was knocked unconscious later in the same match.

Both keepers were taken to hospital, with Cudicini being released later in the evening.

Hilario will likely be in goal for Chelsea on Wednesday when the Blues clash with Champions League rivals Barcelona.
