According to the Athletic via GOAL, Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has warned Mykhailo Mudryk to lay off the weights and cut back on extra gym sessions in a bid to help kickstart his Premier League career.

Chelsea have grown concerned that Mudryk has been ‘overdoing’ it and has spent to much time in the gym in an attempt to bulk up and cope with the physical demands of the Premier League.

Pochettino is yet to hand Mudryk a starting opportunity this season but the winger’s attitude and determination to win over the club’s new manager is said to remain intact.

Chelsea beat Arsenal to the transfer of the 22 year old Ukraine international in a deal worth £88million.
