Mykhailo Mudryk and Moises Caicedo will be on Chelsea’s squad for the Premier League game at Burnley on October 6( Reuters ), according to manager Maurico Pochettino. Both players had injury concerns following the most recent game.
In the 2 – 0 victory over Fulham on Monday, Mudryk was replaced at halftime, and Caicedo was removed in the game’s final minutes after falling to the ground while holding his knee.
Before Saturday’s game, Pochettino told reporters,” Yes, both are in the squad. We’ll decide later if they have a chance to start.”
They did well in their training this week, but I’m still undecided. Since I just left the training pitch, I need to check with the medical staff.
A much-needed boost for a team that had only scored five goals in their previous six Premier League games was provided by Mudryk’s goal for Chelsea against Fulham.
” He is getting better, just like the other players.” Every player has unique circumstances, according to Pochettino.
It’s a big job to try to understand everyone and apply things that we think can help the individual perform in three months of helping and training.
Another player, Armando Broja, made his first goal of the season with Monday’s victory — his second league match since his recovery from a cruciate ligament injury.
” We have known for the past three months that you can sense the potential of the player during a training session. The Argentine manager said,” Now it’s about how he recovers.”
He played against Fulham and possibly tomorrow because he is a very talented player, and we trust him.
The manager must now decide whether to keep Broja or reinstate Nicolas Jackson, who was suspended for the game on Monday.
They are aware that we have already made a decision. Pochettino said,” You’ll see tomorrow.”
This season, Chelsea has yet to win two league games in a row, but the manager will be hopeful that his team can maintain its current form after defeating Fulham and winning the League Cup against Brighton & amp, Hove Albion.
The three points are crucial for us, he said, adding that it’s a good chance to win once more and feel the victory.
We want momentum, of course. It’s really important to win the game, so we’d feel differently going to the international break than we did the previous one.
Burnley, who are 18th in the standings with four points, travels to Chelsea, which is 11th with eight points.
