Pochettino explains why he took Mudryk off at halftime.
Following the win over Fulham at Craven Cottage, Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino provided an update on Mykhailo Mudryk and Moises Caicedo, who both appear to have suffered injuries.
Mykhailo Mudryk scored his first Premier League goal for the Club after finishing Levi Colwill’s cross after 18 minutes.
Moises Caicedo was a key player in midfield alongside Enzo Fernandez, and the two had terrific connection.
Mudryk was taken off at halftime, while Caicedo ran off in stoppage time.
Pochettino stated of Mudryk, “He felt something in his quad that we need to assess.” He didn’t feel comfortable continuing to play. We’re hoping it’s not a big deal and that he’ll be able to play on Saturday.”
“It was contusion,” the Argentine boss said of Caicedo. We’ll see whether it’s something serious; he was exhausted.”
