Mykhailo Mudryk, who suffered an injury, gives Blackburn and Tottenham hope in a cryptic message to Chelsea.
Mykhailo Mudryk, a winger for Chelsea, left the team’s 2-0 loss to Brentford on Saturday due to an injury, and he later posted a mysterious statement online. The most recent setback has come as a huge blow after a run of four consecutive starts in all competitions and five in six for his club following the September international break.
After joining the team, Mudryk had been playing at his best. However, at the beginning of October, during the team’s victory over Fulham—the match in which he eventually scored the team’s first goal—he took a slight setback. He was forced to start on the bench against Burnley because to that niggle, but he returned to the starting lineup against Arsenal.
After a sluggish start to life in London, the run of games brought out the best in him wearing a Chelsea shirt, but it was again cut short at a crucial juncture when Mauricio Pochettino said prior to the match against the Bees that he was not well enough to play. “Yesterday, both Enzo [Fernandez] and [Mykhailo] Mudryk felt a small muscle issue but hopefully for the next game [Blackburn], they’ll be available,” the manager stated prior to play.
“Misha (Mudryk) as well, we’ll miss both but we have a big squad and we’ll find the solutions.” Raheem Sterling was moved to the left once again, giving Noni Madueke the starting nod in the lineup, however neither player was able to lead the squad to a sixth consecutive winless game following goals from Bryan Mbeumo and Ethan Pinnock.
The Blues have another home match coming up on Wednesday when Blackburn Rovers, a mid-table Championship team, come for the Carabao Cup. That will be the team’s final opportunity to prepare for a demanding stretch of games that includes Monday’s match against Tottenham and the following six weeks’ matches against Manchester City, Brighton, Newcastle, and Manchester United.
After a demanding stretch of games, Chelsea and Pochettino will be hoping to see Mudryk return for that match as he looks to regain the form that many have been missing for the past month. Now, the 22-year-old has posted something akin to an update on social media.
