Mykhailo Mudryk has struggled to hit the ground running at Chelsea.
The Ukrainian made his £89 million move to Stamford Bridge in January on an eight-and-a-half-year contract.
But since then it has not been an easy start for the young forward and is yet to score a goal in his 20 Premier League appearances for the club.
Pundit Danny Murphy believes Mudryk needs more regular starts to build momentum after the international break.
The 22-year-old attacker is expected to turn his fortunes under the new manager Mauricio Pochettino.
“When you look at Mudryk, they spent big money on him… His first game at Anfield you saw what he can do,” Murphy told FIVE’s YouTube channel.
“The worst thing you can do when you’ve got a new player is delay his opportunity and make it bigger than it is. You’ve got to give new players a run
“Now, they need a left-winger to play instead of where Chilly (Chilwell) is playing because he’s a left-back.
“Give him five or six games! See.”
