Mauricio Pochettino said in his press conference before Wolves that he is expecting his team to be complete with the returned players.
Nicolas Jackson will be available for the team after his adventure with Senegal in AFCON. His team was eliminated by Ivory Coast. This is good news for Chelsea, who need his services. They loaned Armando Broja to Fulham and they desperately need a striker to be more efficient.
The Blues want more options and intensity upfront and this is what Pochettino can expect from Jackson.
Another big step in this new relationship, if we can name it this way is that the coach can make out of his services in a new squad after the transfer window period. The best way is to take into consideration all the abilities that this player has and to prioritize some things.
Mauricio Pochettino knows his abilities and despite his goals, seven in the Premier League, and his two assists he can do better.
The coach knows that and he will do the impossible to put him on the field in the best shape possible. But this is not the only concern. He must deal with other missing players. According to Chelsea FC, Ugochukwu, Madueke, and Lavia returned and will be part of the team.
Pochettino spoke about the transfer window saying that the situation is opposite with Spain in this period.
Pochettino has to deal with the injuries of Chalobah, Chukwuemeka, Chilwell, Cucurella, Enzo Fernandez, Fofana, James, and Ugochukwu who are expected to have other updates in the upcoming weeks.
He needs Chalobah to defend the spaces and to be a good alternative for Thiago Silva and Bradley Badiashile. This double solid in the first look is conceding and this seems to be a problem for Chelsea and Pochettino.
Fernandez is set to be returned soon and the news of his absence is worrying the board and the manager. Chukwuemeka was one of the loudest transfers with the midfielder, who has delivered some good performances with Chelsea.
