By: Manu Tournoux

The Chelsea manager welcomes with some pleasure the return to competition of Christopher Nkunku. The French striker could get playing time on Saturday against Sheffield United. A first this season in competition with the Londoners.

It’s done ! Christopher Nkunku was integrated into Mauricio Pochettino’s group. A first this season for the French international (10 caps) and the Argentinian coach of Chelsea.

The 26-year-old French striker, injured in his left knee during a summer preparation match with the Blues, has not yet played a single minute in competition this season.

The small event could take place on Saturday during Chelsea-Sheffield United, match counting for the 17th day of the English Championship.

It’s a great motivation for us, for his teammates and for the fans to see a player who should be important.”Pochettino reacted on Friday at a press conference.

The former PSG coach probably really needs this other veteran of the Parisian house. Chelsea, one win in their last five Premier League matches, sit 12th in the table.

Last season, Christopher Nkunku scored 16 goals in 25 Bundesliga matches with the RB Leipzig jersey.
