Injury Return Dates For Chelsea Fans’ Favorites Silva, Kovacic, Kante, Pulisic
Graham Potter has a big team to manage at Chelsea, but he regretted having to take off his key player Thiago Silva during the match against Tottenham. The Blues lost to Southampton when Silva was absent, and they also conceded two goals to Tottenham after he was substituted.
Raheem Sterling returned to the team after a long time, but he couldn’t improve the team’s performance. Although he looked dangerous at times, his impact faded along with the rest of the team.
The team’s recent run of poor results has led to calls for Potter’s sacking. Chelsea fans and pundits are questioning his ability to turn things around, especially without Silva.
The latest updates on the team’s injuries are as follows:
Thiago Silva hurt his knee while trying to stop Harry Kane from taking a shot during the match against Tottenham. He had to be taken off during the first half, and there is no confirmed return date for him yet.
Mateo Kovacic missed the match against Tottenham due to illness, but he is expected to return on March 4th against Leeds.
Christian Pulisic is close to returning to the matchday squad after being out for two months due to a knee injury. He has been training with the team and is expected to return in March.
N’Golo Kante has been out since suffering a hamstring injury in August. He has been doing some light training with the team and is targeting a return to the first team in March.
Cesar Azpilicueta suffered a concussion during the match against Southampton and will miss the upcoming games as he undergoes the concussion protocol. He is expected to return in early March.
Edouard Mendy underwent surgery on a fractured finger in January and is still out of the team.
Armando Broja suffered a knee injury in a mid-season friendly against Aston Villa and needs surgery to fix a ruptured cruciate ligament in his right knee. He is expected to be out for the remainder of the season.
