Christopher Nkunku, Chelsea‘s summer signing from RB Leipzig, is diligently working on his injury recovery.
The Frenchman has been sidelined with a knee injury since pre-season, which required surgery in early August. His expected return is no earlier than December.
Despite the setback, Nkunku remains in high spirits. He recently shared a photo of himself in his home gym, wearing training gear, and captioned it “Homework.”
Chelsea has felt the absence of Nkunku in their attack this season, struggling to find the back of the net consistently.
Nkunku had an impressive goal-scoring record, bagging 23 goals in all competitions for RB Leipzig last season.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino has had to cope with several other long-term injuries, including Benoit Badiashile, Wesley Fofana, Trevoh Chalobah, Reece James, Romeo Lavia, and Carney Chukwuemeka, who have all been sidelined for various reasons.
