Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino is facing a difficult start to the season, but an away trip to Bournemouth on Sunday presents an opportunity for him to select a strong lineup and secure three points.
Romeo Lavia, Chelsea’s £58m signing, may be out for up to six weeks due to an ankle injury in training. Despite not making his Chelsea debut, fans have called for him to start over Conor Gallagher.
Armando Broja, Chelsea’s striker, is close to making his return, with pundit Nizaar Kinsella stating that despite his ACL injury, he looks better than ever before. This will be a significant boost to the team, given Pochettino’s striker crisis.
Another player, Badiashile, who has suffered a lengthy injury alongside Broja, is expected to return to the U21 squad in preparation for playing under Pochettino. The goal is for Badiashile to partner Levi Colwill.
In conclusion, Chelsea’s injury news is a mixed one, with Pochettino struggling to manage the team’s poor start and the possibility of Lavia starting over Gallagher.
