BREAKING NEWS: “He is the cause, we have been conceding many goals lately which is very bad, any more mistake from him will see him off the bench- Pochettino sends warning message to Chelsea Star who caused the second goal against Brighton.
He is making a lot of mistake lately
We were a little bit flat when we conceded at the end of the first half in the second half and then Gallagher was sent off. It wasn’t a second yellow card, but that is my opinion, maybe I am wrong.”
Chelsea will now be without Gallagher’s services following his red. A one-match ban means that he will be unavailable for the midweek trip to face Manchester United at Old Trafford.
However, in more positive news, the Blues will be able to welcome back James, who has served his own ban for his sending off at Newcastle. Marc Cucurella will also be back in contention after serving a suspension for five yellow cards.
There could also be a few injury returnees for the clash with the Red Devils. Malo Gusto and Christopher Nkunku could potentially be in contention.
The latter moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer in a £52m switch from German side RB Leipzig. He has yet to make his competitive debut for the Blues after suffering a knee injury during pre-season.
