Mauricio Pochettino reveals the injury of Enzo Fernandez as Chelsea deal another major blow


Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino issues another huge injury update of Enzo Fernandez. Pochettino shares that Fernandez will miss the clash against Wolves on Sunday. The 22-year old looked trembling during the Carabao Cup match against Newcastle and was subbed off. Armando Broja was the man to replace him for the rest of the game. Pochettino attributed to the woes of the star but it is now revealed that he is nursing a hernia.

Speaking ahead of the clash at Molineux on Sunday, the Argentine manager said,

Enzo is going to be out of the game against Wolverhampton. We are going to see if he can be involved again as soon as possible.

You already have the information that it was a hernia and he also didn’t feel well. We are going to give treatment with the doctor. For me, it is not going to be a problem I think he is going to be as soon as possible again with the group.”

Moreover, Enzo Fernandez also shares a message about his injury on the social media. When asked if Romeo Lavia will make his debut in the absence of the World Cup winner, Pochettino says,

You guys are pushing with the players who are not playing. Lavia is in a similar position to [Christopher] Nkunku, you know? He arrived and never can make his debut.

After nearly six months, maybe he will be involved with the team. He is doing well but he still needs time to get his best form. He’s desperate to make his debut and he’s pushing. But I want to make clear, with the players with a big period off, you know, out of the competition, they are desperate to be involved.
