Mykhailo Mudryk has trained with Chelsea for the first time since his £88.5 million transfer to Stamford Bridge on Sunday..
Despite Arsenal’s pursuit, the Ukraine international joined from Shakhtar Donetsk, who were beaten to the winger’s signature by their London rivals.
Mudryk, who has signed an eight-and-a-half-year contract with the Blues, was paraded in front of the fans during the much-needed victory over Crystal Palace.
Mudryk was put through his paces at Cobham on Wednesday.
Manager Graham Potter is said to see his new signing’s pace and creativity as the spark his team needs to kickstart their season.
Chelsea enters Saturday’s crucial game with Liverpool tenth in the Premier League table and having won only two of their last five games..
While it remains to be seen whether Potter will throw Mudryk into the deep end at Anfield, the 22-year-old is in line to make his debut in some capacity..
It’s worth noting that Joao Felix made his Fulham debut just a day after joining on loan from Atletico Madrid, though the Portugal international is now suspended following his red card at Craven Cottage.
