Chelsea Vs West Ham; Mykhailo Mudryk out, four more injury players in. Here are the returned players.

As a result of the last match and how he was subbed off it was speculated that Mykhailo Mudryk could miss West Ham match but then again Chelsea will have four more injury boosts waiting to come on.

Speaking ahead of the trip to West Ham next weekend, Potter confirmed the big money Ukraine forward is suffering with a virus.

“He’s had a heavy cold this week and he was just feeling heavy-legged at half time and we didn’t want to take a chance,” Potter said ahead of West Ham (Football.London).

“He’s still in the process where we’re building up his minutes after the break he was on in Ukraine. So that was our decision there.”

Mudryk has a week to recover but is listed as a doubt for the West Ham match given that nobody has a crystal ball to know how quickly he will recover with some nasty bugs going around at the moment.

Christian Pulisic will also miss the trip to West Ham with the US international now expected back until March.

Not that Chelsea are short of options after their eye-watering transfer splurge of course.

West Ham will not welcome the news that Potter now has two players back who are seen as fundamental to Chelsea’s entire system – Reece James and Ben Chilwell.

Chelsea will also have Raheem Sterling and Ruben Loftus-Cheek available for West Ham.

James was named in the starting line-up against Fulham and his comeback is being managed carefully as he was brought off at the hour mark. And Chilwell made his comeback as a second half substitute at the Cottage.

“Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Raheem Sterling, and Ruben [Loftus-Cheek] are back in the squad, not ready for 90 minutes but in the squad,” Potter confirmed this weekend.
