Pochettino provides concise injury update on Chelsea’s squad for tomorrow
Mauricio Pochettino has a lot of injuries in his squad – 10 players out of the squad of 25 were listed on the injury report today. But despite that, his update in the press conference was pretty simple – it will be the same squad tomorrow as we had for Saturday’s game against Preston.
That means no return for Carney Chukwuemeka or Ben Chilwell, who seem closest to coming back, and that Christopher Nkunku’s latest problem is going to keep him out for another game. Benoit Badiashile
The good news is that it’s a second consecutive game against Championship opposition, so the team we used on Saturday should be enough to win it. Conor Gallagher and Thiago Silva can come back in after their rest, and hopefully we can play from the first minute like we did in the second half against Preston.
Fingers crossed that his next presser has better news in terms of recovering players.
