Mauricio Pochettino raises concerns over Chelsea's injury woes ahead of Tottenham clash

Posted : 01 May 2024

Mauricio Pochettino sheds light on Chelsea's ongoing struggle with injuries, with up to 14 players expected to be sidelined for their upcoming clash against Tottenham. The recent additions of defenders Thiago Silva and Axel Disasi to the injury list have further compounded the team's woes, forcing the Chelsea boss to rely heavily on young academy graduates, aged 20 and under, in recent matches.


Chelsea's campaign has been marred by a string of injuries, disrupting their momentum and affecting the performance of key players acquired through a significant £1-billion transfer spree over the past two years.


Notable absentees include Wesley Fofana, who has yet to make an appearance this season due to an ACL injury, and forward Christopher Nkunku, who has been limited to just seven Premier League outings. Additionally, the club has faced prolonged spells without crucial players like Romeo Lavia, Reece James, and Ben Chilwell, contributing to their mid-table standing.


Pochettino emphasizes the need for improvement in various aspects, including communication, dynamics, and strategy, to address the team's injury crisis and enhance their performance moving forward.


While expressing admiration for veteran defender Thiago Silva, who is set to depart the club at the end of the season, Pochettino acknowledges his invaluable contribution and wishes him the best for his future endeavors.
