Following their respective knocks during Wednesday night’s Blues victory over Crystal Palace, Romeo Lavia and Mykhailo Mudryk will be evaluated by Chelsea, according to manager Mauricio Pochettino. At Stamford Bridge, the hosts won a decisive three points thanks to a last-minute penalty kick from Noni Madueke.

After some excellent effort from Malo Gusto on the left side, Mudryk gave Chelsea the lead within the first fifteen minutes. Just before the half, though, Michael Olise—who Chelsea was hoping to recruit during the summer transfer window—leveled the score.

After then, Chelsea dominated the second half and continued to press the Palace goal. But, the home crowd was starting to lose patience, and that’s when Madueke entered the game with around 20 minutes remaining and turned it around.

After Eberechi Eze fouled Madueke, the winger was confident enough to take the penalty kick from 12 yards out. In west London, the 21-year-old gave Dean Henderson the wrong idea to give Chelsea the maximum number of points.

But the news wasn’t all positive for the Blues. Romeo Lavia, who joined the team in the summer from Southampton and entered the game in the second half to make his eagerly anticipated debut, took a knock late in the game and will now be evaluated.

Mudryk also took a little hit. The pair will be evaluated by the team’s physicians prior to Chelsea’s Saturday afternoon trip to Kenilworth Road to face Luton Town.

Pochettino stated, “We have to evaluate Mudryk and then Romeo Lavia as well.” When asked what was wrong with Lavia, the head coach of Chelsea replied, “He feels something, some issue.” We have to make sure and pray it’s not [bad].

“I’m a little concerned. I’m not sure because, if you saw the game [against Crystal Palace], you would not have understood why I moved Lavia about at the end since he was having trouble running. We’ll observe the situation.

“Hopefully, it won’t be a major problem and he can play with us once more. A key player who will heal, it will be unfortunate if we are unable to employ him in the upcoming games.

When Chelsea visits Kenilworth Road, Pochettino will be hoping to use both to break their dismal recent away performance. Since defeating a nine-man Tottenham team at the start of November, Chelsea has not triumphed away from home.
