Chelsea anticipating a quick return of their forward Nkunku

Fabrizio Romano recently shared a new update concerning Christopher Nkunku. The Chelsea forward sustained an injury in Chelsea’s last preseason match. Hence, he did not participate in a single competitive match for Chelsea.

The approach for all numerous injured players of Chelsea has been to reintroduce them gradually. And Romano emphasizes that this strategy applies to the potential standout player, Nkunku. While everyone observed him returning to training on the field, there’s no haste to integrate him into full team participation just yet.

Chelsea will prioritize caution with the former Leipzig player, avoiding any unnecessary risks. The focus is on targeting the upcoming international break as a milestone for his return. This approach proved successful with other injured players last month. And if this information holds true, we may witness the Frenchman don the Blue jersey by the end of this month.

Chelsea expecting return of Christopher Nkunku by when?

Even that timeframe appears somewhat ambitious. But he is expected to be in close proximity to a return around the time when Chelsea takes on Newcastle on the 25th of this month.

Chelsea has a tough game ahead as they will face Manchester City. Hence, they need to capitalize with their current squad and hold to their ground. The Blues did a fantastic job of thrashing Tottenham and breaking their unbeaten streak just days ago. This kind of momentum was necessary for the players in order to face a club like Manchester City.
