Chelsea boss, Mauricio Pochettino has urged Noni Madueke to compete and improve in order to feature more often this season.

Madueke arrived Stamford Bridge from PSV Eindhoven for a fee close to £29million earlier in January.

The winger has failed to establish himself as a key member under Pochettino so far.

The 21-year-old has scored twice in 20 appearances across competitions for the Blues.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League tie with Wolves on Sunday, Pochettino told reporters about Madueke:

“I think from the beginning of the season, he was involved, then not involved, injured, and suffered some problem.

“Noni is in a position where there is massive competition, there is too many players in that area. I think he needs to compete and improve his level.

“I think at the moment, he was injured, but now he has recovered, he may be involved in the next games.”
