Sad News from Stamford Bridge as Chelsea confirm injury of another super star ahead of Luton Town clash

Chelsea have been dealt with a fresh injury blow with Mykhailo Mudryk set to miss Friday’s Premier League clash against Luton Town.

The Ukraine international joins a growing injury list which already includes Christopher Nkunku, Reece James, Wesley Fofana, Carney Chukwuemeka, Benoit Badiashile, Armando Broja, Trevoh Chalobah and Marcus Bettinelli.

Chelsea confirmed the news about Mudryk on their official website and have announced that he is now ‘starting rehabilitation having undergone assessments on an injury sustained in training this week’.

Mauricio Pochettino was forced to defend Mudryk after another difficult display in a Chelsea shirt in the 3-1 defeat at West Ham last time out and the Argentine insists the £88.5m signing will eventually come good.

Asked what is going wrong for Mudryk, and what he made of his performance, Pochettino replied: ‘Well I think he needs to be more in the spirit to score.

‘He played 45 minutes, he needs to have continuity. But first of all he needs to build his continuity and trust during the trainings during the week.

‘He’s a young player that needs to be trusted, we need to trust in him to create this relationship with us and with the team.

‘He has enormous quality and talent, I think it’s only [a matter of] time for him to settle better in the team and for sure he will find the way to perform in the way that we expect.’

Pochettino arrived as Chelsea head coach this summer, looking to turn the club’s fortunes around after their abysmal 12th-placed Premier League finish last term.

The former Tottenham boss is still seeking his first win at Chelsea following a 1-1 home draw against Liverpool and the 3-1 loss at West Ham.
