Chelsea are back in Premier League action this weekend with the visit of Burnley to Stamford Bridge. The Blues earned only their second league win of the season on Monday with a 2-0 victory over Fulham.
Mauricio Pochettino has lifted the pressure off himself and his side after they went three games without scoring, losing to Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa.
This Saturday's game is another opportunity for the west Londoners to climb further up the table. Burnley earned their first win of the season on Tuesday night at Luton Town but they remain in the relegation zone.
And despite the feel good factor returning to Cobham, Pochettino still faces a number of big calls to make due to unforeseen injury concerns. At Fulham, Armando Broja started a game of football for the first time since 2022, making his return with a goal.
There was a fresh injury concern regarding Mykhailo Mudryk. The forward was withdrawn at half-time against Fulham after scoring his first goal for the club.
Fears did emerge that he had sustained an injury but he was fortunately spotted in training on Wednesday. «He was doing well,» Pochettino told Sky Sports. "[It is] unlucky that at half time he felt something in his quad but we hope that it is not a big issue and he will be ready for Saturday."
