Chelsea suffer fresh injury blow ahead of Luton clash

Mudryk ruled out of Luton clash

Chelsea have suffered a fresh injury blow with Mykhailo Mudryk ruled out of the Premier League clash against Luton Town tonight.



The Blues have made a poor start to the top-flight season with just one point accumulated from the games against Liverpool and West Ham United.

They have the opportunity to put things right against newly-promoted Luton, who are massive underdogs for the upcoming clash.

Ahead of the game, manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that Mudryk won't be available after picking up a minor injury.

He said: "He won't be available for tomorrow. He is a player we hope to help perform in the way we believe he can perform. It's not a big issue, we need to wait one week or maybe a few days."

Mudryk has not found the back of the net for the Blues since his big-money move from Shakhtar Donestk during the January transfer window.

There were high expectations after his lively cameo against Liverpool on debut, but he has not kicked on and has lacked confidence.

The injury is another blow for the promising youngster, who would have fancied his chances of scoring against Luton at Stamford Bridge.
