Ex-Chelsea doctor Eva Carneiro has appeared at a tribunal hearing for her constructive dismissal case against the Premier League champions.

The 42-year-old Briton is suing the club for constructive dismissal and breach of contract.

The private hearing is taking place at London South Employment Tribunal in Croydon, during which the parties could agree to come to a settlement.

Chelsea filed their defence in the tribunal hearing in December.

There is a separate but connected legal claim against former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho for alleged discrimination.

Carneiro was dropped from first-team duties after then boss Mourinho criticised her and first-team physio Jon Fearn for going on to the pitch to treat Eden Hazard during the 2-2 draw with Swansea on the opening day of the season.

The action meant that Chelsea were temporarily down to nine men, and afterwards Mourinho called Dr Carneiro and Fearn “impulsive and naive”.

Carneiro did not appear on the bench again for first-team duties and later parted company with the club.
