Mauricio Pochettino and his side will be looking to get back to winning ways. Players returning from injuries can now be used in their plans.

Something to Build-on

With a victory over Newcastle United, Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to build on Chelsea‘s thrilling eight-goal thriller against Manchester City. On Saturday afternoon, the Magpies and Blues will meet at St. James’ Park in an attempt for both teams to go back to winning ways following the international break.

Chelsea enters the match on the heels of a tumultuous draw with the league leaders. Cole Palmer beat Ederson from 12 yards in stoppage time, saving the west Londoners from certain defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Pochettino’s team will be eager to maintain their strong run of play. As they have only dropped one of their last five Premier League games. Many players are already being tested at Cobham.

Mauricio Pochettino observes Training

Having said that, football.london has examined five aspects of the Blues’ first practice. Following the international break that caught their attention.

After suffering an injury in the summer, Christopher Nkunku, who cost about £52 million to sign with Chelsea from RB Leipzig, is yet to make his team’s competitive debut. The 26-year-old attacker has not played since suffering a blow to his knee. In a preseason match against Borussia Dortmund in the United States.

Having recovered for several months, Nkunku is now back to training with the first team. Although it looks doubtful that he will make his Premier League debut against Newcastle. Blues supporters are happy to see him back on the pitch.

Palmer has emerged as a key member of Chelsea’s lineup in Nkunku’s absence, and Pochettino is undoubtedly grateful for the young player’s efforts.
