Chelsea injury update

Ahead of the game, Mauricio Pochettino has provided updates on several key players.

The Argentine confirmed Christopher Nkunku, Nicolas Jackson and Malo Gusto are all in contention to face Liverpool tonight.

When asked about the availability of his players, Pochettino said: “Malo Gusto and Christoph can be in the squad for tomorrow.

“[They will] travel with us, with the team, that is good news. We will see. We will wait for the last moment, but at the moment, yes, it’s good news to have two players recovered.

“And to see maybe [if] Nicolas Jackson tomorrow [can] be involved in the game, if he can arrive.”

Chelsea will, however, be without Levi Colwill vs the Reds: “Levi [Colwill] is out. He suffered a minor injury in his tendon. It’s not a big issue, but he is going to be out for tomorrow,” Pochettino added.
