Mykhailo Mudryk’s clear Chelsea note to Mauricio Pochettino ahead of Bournemouth blow

Mykhailo Mudryk will hope to start for Chelsea against Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday.

The 22-year-old has endured a difficult start to the new season, with no league starts and only 67 minutes of substitute appearances.

He missed the win against Luton and the Carabao Cup victory against AFC Wimbledon due to a minor injury, but he has since returned to training.

During the international break, he also featured for Ukraine in their European championship qualifying match against England.

Mudryk struggled to make an impression against Kyle Walker, but supporters have urged for him, Noni Madueke, or Cole Palmer to start.

Ben Chilwell has been deployed in an advanced role in lieu of this trio, with Mauricio Pochettino selecting only two proven attackers in his last two starting lineups.

Pochettino defended his use of Chilwell in Friday’s press conference, suggesting that a potential reevaluation of tactics is not imminent. Ben is a fullback, but he can also assist the team in other positions, he said.

I believe that in the team’s animation, Ben Chilwell created the most opportunities. I believe that Ben played in a comparable position for the national team.”

Mudryk appears to have demonstrated his finest quality to Pochettino during training with his electric pace and quick feet.

The January signing posted a video of his goal in a small-sided game on Instagram, in which he beats one defender, receives the ball back from a teammate, and then scores emphatically.

While on the Cobham surfaces, Mudryk performed a number of moves similar to those he displayed in his electrifying debut against Liverpool earlier this year.

If Mudryk is to achieve success at Stamford Bridge, it will likely be under Pochettino’s tutelage that he receives the necessary belief and confidence from above.

Earlier this summer, he stated on Chelsea’s official website that “not everything depends on what happens in a match.”

“It has more to do with your mentality. When you feel confident and the coach has confidence in you, you play the next game without hesitation.

“From the first days of preseason, I began to comprehend what the coach expects of us – and of me. This facilitates my enjoyment of the game with my teammates.
