Major Chelsea injury update on Christopher Nkunku is confirmed by Mauricio Pochettino

Major Chelsea injury update on Christopher Nkunku is confirmed by Mauricio Pochettino.

Before Chelsea's match against Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon, Mauricio Pochettino has stated that Christopher Nkunku is eligible for selection. Due to an injury sustained in the summer, the 26-year-old forward, who cost the Blues approximately £52 million to acquire from RB Leipzig, has not yet made his Premier League debut.

After suffering a blow to his knee in a preseason match against Borussia Dortmund in the US, Nkunku has not been able to play. With his recuperation progressing, the France international has resumed first-team training and will be targeting a few minutes this weekend against the Blades.

Nkunku can be involved, Pochettino responded to reporters when they asked if he was available. That's excellent news. It's excellent news for us to be participating tomorrow, to be part of the squad, and to experience the competition after the preseason. We must maintain our composure and silence so as not to overburden him."Now that he is aware of the Premier League, he will develop. Seeing a guy who should be significant to us and who is playing for the first time is very motivating for us, our teammates, and the supporters."

Sheffield United leads the Premier League table, but Chelsea faces a "tough" match, according to Pochettino. Pochettino stated: "It is never easy. Games cannot be compared. It's going to be difficult since I am quite familiar with Chris and Sheffield United."They'll be low block and aggressive, and we've had trouble stopping them. The most crucial thing is to improve our mindset and style of play, come up with new ideas, and become more reliable and steady."As for how we're going to approach the game tomorrow. We were shouting a lot, so the indicator is when I start to lose my voice. The team and squad are thinking about it. We are driven to find a method to perform, so we will battle for what we believe will help us succeed."

Just before Pochettino's pre-game news conference on Friday afternoon, the team announced that Marc Cucurella and Robert Sanchez will be joining Reece James in the Cobham treatment room.

"I think always when you suffer an injury and he (Sanchez) was our No. 1 goalkeeper so far, always a player we will miss," Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho stated in response to a question on the team's mounting injury list.Another goalie for us is putting in a lot of effort to be prepared. Naturally, we are devastated to lose a player, possibly for a few weeks.

"We must wait and closely monitor the circumstances, as well as those involving Reece and Marc Cucurella. We have encountered several situations from the start. The competition never stops, so we must be formidable."
