At least four Chelsea players will not feature against Manchester United in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
This follows an injury update from manager Mauricio Pochettino today, ahead of the game at Old Trafford.
Pochettino has given fresh news over the fitness of Christopher Nkunku, Romeo Lavia, Lesley Ugochukwu and Noni Madueke.
‘[Christopher Nkunku is] not involved tomorrow,’ Pochettino said. ‘I think it is like we always tell you, it’s about assessing day-by-day.
‘Sometimes we get excited and we want to have the player as soon as possible but I think we need to be careful.
‘Romeo [Lavia] is doing well also but is not going to be involved.
‘Lesley [Ugochukwu] felt something this week, Noni [Madueke] after Brighton also. Minor problems, we hope that soon they will be available for the team.’
