Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino also confirmed Romeo Lavia isn’t ready to play for Chelsea following his transfer from Southampton.
Pochettino said: “Lavia, after we assessed him, I think he still needs a few weeks to be ready to be involved with the team. In his conditioning he’s working to try to catch his team-mates. For Romeo we need to wait a few weeks to be with the team.”
