Chelsea midfielder absent from Wednesday's training session

Moises Caicedo news

Caicedo could miss Villa game

Chelsea midfielder Moises Caicedo has not returned to training following his knee injury on international duty with Ecuador.

Caicedo joined the Blues in a British-record deal from Brighton this summer, and he has yet to play a meaningful part for them.

The youngster picked up an injury on international duty which forced him to miss the recent draw against Bournemouth away.

It was anticipated that he would return for the Aston Villa game this weekend, but that seems very doubtful at the current point.

As per reports, he was absent from the training session yesterday and he could be absent for the upcoming game versus Villa too.

Chelsea have picked up only five points from five league games this term and the pressure is already mounting on Mauricio Pochettino.

Pochettino has insisted that the injury concerns are a reason behind the poor form but the hierarchy may not stay patient with him for long.

The Argentine is already facing the prospect of being dismissed.
