With no live press conference today, Pochettino’s pre match comments were recorded following the defeat to Wolves.
Chelsea host Crystal Palace as the festive fixtures continue. The break from the Premier League is on the horizon and it can’t some soon enough for Pochettino.
The following players that were on the injury list ahead of the Wolves game were; Sanchez, Cucurella, James, Chalobah, Chilwell, Chukwuemeka and Fofana.
Pochettino has also confirmed that both Enzo Fernández & Lesley Ugochukwu will miss the game. He told the media, via Football London,
“No, Enzo no. But Mo, (Caicedo) hopefully yes. Today he was better.” As for Lesley. Poch said, “I think he felt his hamstring again.”
As well as having 9 players on the injury list, both Cole Palmer and Raheem Sterling will miss the game due to suspension. They will be back for Luton on Saturday.
When you factor in Nkunku and Lavia not being able to play at least half of a game yet, Chelsea are capped without 13 players being able to reach their potential.
The only boost for the blues is Caicedo looks to be ready to go again.
