Report: Chelsea expect £195k-a-week player will be available vs Middlesbrough, he’s missed the last three games.



Report: Chelsea anticipates the £195k-per-week player, who has missed the last three games, will be available against Middlesbrough.Chelsea is hoping for positive developments regarding Christopher Nkunku in advance of the crucial cup match against Middlesbrough next week.

That is the prevailing conjecture of the present day.


Due to a hip injury, 26-year-old Christopher Nkunku has missed the club’s last three games across all competitions. Additionally, a knee injury derailed his absence for the initial months of the season.



The £195,000-per-week attacker (Spotrac) has, surprisingly, appeared in only four games so far this season.


The Frenchman may be available and healthy to play for Chelsea in their upcoming match. Next Tuesday evening, they will host Middlesbrough in the second leg of a Carabao Cup semi-final matchup, needing to overcome a 1-0 deficit from the first leg.According to the Northern Echo, Chelsea anticipates Nkunku to be available for their cup semi-final match against Boro.


The 26-year-old forward will increase his training intensity this week in an effort to be ready to compete in the second leg in six days, as previously disclosed.


Since his £52 million (Sky Sports) acquisition from German club RB Leipzig, Blues supporters haven’t seen much of him, but he’s one of the few players at Stamford Bridge with a track record of consistently scoring goals at the highest level.Christopher Nkunku could potentially face Middlesbrough.

Mauricio Pochettino’s squad is beginning to regain some strength as an increasing number of players regain their fitness.


The majority of Chelsea supporters and ourselves identified Nkunku as a crucial player for the 2023–24 campaign. Sadly, the situation does not unfold in this manner during the initial half of the season.


An appearance by Nkunku, even if it is as a late substitute, against Boro will be a tremendous boost.


Recently, journalist Ben Jacobs stated via X that Chelsea is optimistic that Nkunku and a new No. 9 will assist in the club’s transformation in 2024.


We consider it vital that Pochettino’s squad advance to the League Cup final, so the timely return of players for the second leg of the semi-final is encouraging.
