What Ruben Loftus-Cheek was overheard saying to Chelsea teammate about Mykhailo Mudryk in training yesterday
Yesterday’s session saw the first time the new signing got involved with his new side after his big-money move from Shakhtar Donetsk.
The 22-year-old joined Chelsea in extraordinary circumstances after being linked with a move to Arsenal throughout January.
Despite their London rivals sitting pretty at the top of the table, it was Stamford Bridge where Mudryk was being introduced over the weekend.
Yesterday’s training session was an extremely positive one in terms of who was present and available for Graham Potter.
Reece James and Ben Chilwell were seen with the squad for the first time since their injuries. The left-back in particular has not been seen since November.
Loftus-Cheek warns teammate of Mudryk
While Kai Havertz was not seen, the returning group, which also included Loftus-Cheek, is sure to bring confidence back to the squad going into a big few weeks for the club.
The midfielder was seen in a video on the club’s twitter warning Humphreys that: “It’s about to get long” after the introduction of Mudryk to the squad.
The teenager made his first team debut against Manchester City in the FA Cup, drawing praise from the likes of Jamal Musiala despite the heavy defeat.
Mudryk will be hoping to make his debut this weekend, as the Blues prepare for the challenge of a match at Anfield.
Liverpool and Chelsea are perhaps the two biggest underperformers of the season so far, with a victory perhaps only really being used for form ahead of their respective Champions League ties.
