Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to the media ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League trip to West London rivals Brentford. Given Chelsea’s recent run of results and various injuries, this afternoons press conference was insightful.

One of the subjects discussed by Pochettino was regarding the return of Wesley Fofana. The Frenchman has not played a game for the blues since the final day of the 22/23 season and Pochettino has confirmed today it is unlikely we will see Fofana for the remainder of this campaign.

Pochettino told the media, “Unfortunately, I think it’s difficult to see him…but you never know.” 

If Fofana were to miss the remainder of the season he would complete the 23/24 campaign with 0 appearances whilst only making 15 league appearances last season.

In more positive developments both Marc Cucurella and Thiago Silva are nearing a return after being removed from the clubs official injury list. Pochettino also confirmed that Nkunku’s injury is regarding his hamstring.
