Pochettino expresses concern about Nkunku’s injury

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino expressed concern about forward Christopher Nkunku’s ongoing injury troubles, emphasizing that the situation is worrisome and complicated.

Nkunku has been dealing with a hip problem and has been unable to train for 10 days, adding to his earlier knee injury struggles since joining Chelsea from Leipzig.

Pochettino expressed disappointment over the setback, highlighting the team’s eagerness to have Nkunku back in action as soon as possible.

The absence of Nkunku puts additional strain on Chelsea’s attacking options, particularly with Nicolas Jackson currently on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations.

In light of their recent League Cup defeat to Middlesbrough, Pochettino urged the team to bounce back by delivering a strong performance in the upcoming match against Fulham.

He acknowledged the need to address the criticism following the unexpected loss and emphasized the importance of performing well in the upcoming game.
