Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Chelsea, has determined that Christopher Nkunku has one significant problem.

Pochettino claims that even though Nkunku impressed in Chelsea’s 2-1 Premier League victory over Crystal Palace on Wednesday, he is still “far from his best.”

Remember that Mykhailo Mudryk gave the Blues the early lead, and Noni Madueke’s penalty kick in the 89th minute gave the home team the victory over Palace.

As an advanced midfielder, Nkunku did a fantastic job of tying Chelsea together before being moved out wide for the remaining minutes of the match.

The 26-year-old was involved in nearly every successful offensive move Chelsea made.

Pochettino, though, is hoping for more from the Frenchman.

“The problem is that Christopher Nkunku is still far away from his best,” Pochettino told Amazon Prime.

“He is a very intelligent player. He can connect [us]. We missed this kind of playmaker.

“Nkunku can do this, but he is more of an offensive player, who is going to go forward and have space in-between the lines.”
