Following the completion of the international football break, the spotlight has returned to club football, particularly in the top five leagues. Chelsea, as an example, concluded their EPL round 4 with an unexpected loss to Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge, leaving a bitter taste for the departing players.
As the international football break concludes, Chelsea’s head coach, Mauricio Pochettino, will welcome back several key first-team players who were sidelined due to injuries. Reece James, Armando Broja, and Benoit Badiashile are among those returning, providing a boost to the squad. Moreover, there is excitement surrounding the potential debuts of 2 new players.
Chelsea’s unexpected loss to Nottingham Forest at Stamford Bridge made headlines, leaving fans and pundits surprised.
In the wake of this, goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic is poised to push for his debut, especially given some uncertainty surrounding Robert Sanchez’s recent performances in the goalpost over the last four games. Petrovic would have to showcase his skills to head coach Mauricio Pochettino, which may potentially earn him more game time in more games to come.
Romeo Lavia, another new addition to Chelsea’s roster this summer, has been diligently preparing for his debut. He has however had a setback as he sustained an ankle injury which may see him return in few weeks time. The anticipation is high as Chelsea fans look forward to what these new and returning players can bring to the team after the brief hiatus caused by international football.
