Mauricio Pochettino has ruled out Chelsea winger Mykhaylo Mudryk out from Chelsea’s final game of the season.

Mudryk was subbed off in the first-half against Brighton away at the Amex Stadium due to injury.

Mudryk was subbed off just before half-time due to concussion reason.

Pochettino has now confirmed that the Ukrainian will miss Sunday’s end-of-season clash with Bournemouth.

“No, he is not okay, we are checking,” Pochettino said.

“He was a little bit dizzy but we used the concussion substitution and the rule is seven days so he is not going to be available for the next game but I hope it is nothing wrong.”

The £89m signing has been criticised for his lack of effort since signing for Chelsea, but ex-Premier League star Alan Smith believes Mudryk is now looking like the player Chelsea paid big money to sign.

Former Arsenal striker Alan Smith told Sky Sports: “Mykhaylo Mudryk is looking a bit more like it lately.

“It helps that this is his fifth start on the trot, that is his best.

“He’s bound to gain a bit more match sharpness and rhythm and there should be a lot more to come from the lad. He looks to be heading in the right direction.”
