Reports suggest that Chelsea might see the return of a player from injury at a crucial juncture. The Evening Standard indicates that youngster Carney Chukwuemeka has a probability of being steady for inclusion in the squad for the EFL Cup final against Liverpool this weekend.

Chukwuemeka’s season has been plagued by interruptions. Just when it seemed he was on the verge of a breakthrough at Stamford Bridge. Starting the first two games under Mauricio Pochettino signified the manager’s trust in him.

He scored his first goal for Chelsea against West Ham. Thus, prompting pundit and former Blue Marcel Desailly to label him as perfect in every aspect.

However, moments later, he suffered a knee injury, altering his trajectory significantly. Reports suggest he had to undergo rehabilitation, including learning to run differently. Despite this setback, he made a brief return, providing an assist for Christopher Nkunku in a Premier League match against Liverpool.

Return of Chukwuemeka will be a positive boost for Chelsea

Recent reports suggest that Chukwuemeka could potentially return soon at Wembley. His availability would provide a significant boost for Pochettino and his team. They have been striving for results in recent matches.

The recent match against Manchester City was a tough test for Chelsea, as they aim to maintain their unexpected lead. While they may have been content with securing a point at the Etihad Stadium, having more first-team options on the reserve would provide a significant boost for the team. Moises Caicedo, Enzo Fernandez, and Conor Gallagher are likely to secure the starting midfield positions.
