However, in a a hat with TribalFootball, Pichettino appealed to Chelsea fans not to put too much of expectation on Nkunku.

“We are talking about players that are young. Who arrive and suffer an injury, like Christopher.

“Now they meet the team and in the middle of the competition they need time to start to perform and to get the best form and sometimes everyone can judge you have recovered the player, but most important is in which form?

“The expectation is to see the best Nkunku and we need time for him to perform in the way that we expect. One thing is to be available another is to perform in the way we we expect.

“We will not put too much pressure on him day by day, and push him to arrive as soon as possible at his best to try to help the team.”
