EFL CHAMPIONSHIP

Chelsea player Nkunku might miss match against Fulham

One notable Chelsea player, Christopher Nkunku, has been absent from training. As the team completes its final preparations before returning to Premier League action. The official club app’s images have not featured Nkunku participating alongside his teammates. Meanwhile, the Blues are to face local rivals Fulham in their upcoming match tomorrow.

Christopher Nkunku has faced significant challenges in his inaugural season as a Chelsea player, despite initial promise showcased during the pre-season tour.

In the short time he received for the first team this season, Christopher Nkunku swiftly demonstrated his capabilities. Notably, he scored on his debut against Wolves on Christmas Eve in a match that ended in a 2-1 defeat. However, in his recent appearances, Nkunku has shown signs of needing more time to fully acclimate and complete 90 minutes at the highest level.

It appears that Christopher Nkunku might not have been fully prepared for active involvement. As reports emerged soon after indicating his return to the treatment table. Mauricio Pochettino acknowledged uncertainty about Nkunku’s future. And notably, he has been absent in any capacity in the team’s last two games.

Nkunku struggling so far with his injuries in Chelsea

Since his £52 million move, Christopher Nkunku has been encountering more time out due to injuries than being actively there. Chelsea has had to explore alternative solutions to address their attacking challenges. Once again, he was not in training during the session held yesterday, suggesting ongoing fitness concerns.

Given the circumstances, Cole Palmer is expecting to play a crucial role this weekend. Especially with the need for a strong rebound after his challenging performance in the previous outing.

During the recent match against Middlesbrough, Cole Palmer missed several significant scoring opportunities, marking an unusual performance compared to the quality he has consistently displayed in other matches throughout the season.
