Revealed: Why Mykhailo Mudryk is not starting games for Chelsea

The January signing has seen his game time limited in recent weeks.

Mykhailo Mudryk made his Chelsea debut vs Liverpool. The winger joined the Blues in January for a staggering £89m.

Graham Potter opted not to start the Ukrainian vs Liverpool in the day’s early kick-off.

However, Mudryk caught the eye during a 35-minute cameo, setting up a number of openings and hitting the side netting after fine work inside the area, but was unable to make the occasion with a goal.

But he has since made just four more league appearances since his debut, none of which have seen Mudryk complete 90 minutes.

And now, Graham Potter has explained why the winger is not seeing much game time:

“Every player wants to play and it’s important that players play to improve, I think that’s a fact,” Potter said.

“Sometimes you just need a bit of training time, you need a breather. Lots of factors. Hopefully, he can benefit from the time he’s had. It’s not easy for him to just arrive in the middle of pre-season for him and to come into a new country, new club, new league, and just hit his absolute maximum level.

“It’s regardless of the fee, I know people will look at the fee but it doesn’t change the situation he is in. So we’re positive about him. We’re positive about the future for him. But we need just to help them settle and help him understand what he needs to do to help us.”
