Tuchel confirms five injury doubts for Leicester visit

Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that he has a number of injury concerns ahead of tomorrow night’s Premier League clash with Leicester City.

The Blues welcome the Foxes to Stamford Bridge for the penultimate league game of the season safe in the knowledge that Champions League football has been secured and that third place will be confirmed with a positive result.

Our German head coach spoke to the media at Cobham earlier today and did inform the attending journalists that we head into the game with some injury issues following Saturday’s FA Cup final defeat to Liverpool on penalties.

Andreas Christensen missed the final through illness and is expected to again sit out tomorrow night’s fixture, while Mateo Kovacic is a major doubt with an ankle issue sustained at Wembley.

Tuchel hopes to have Kai Havertz available but admits there are ‘big question marks’ on whether he will be fit while fellow German striker, Timo Werner, is definitely ruled out.

‘With Andreas, I’m not sure yet if he’s going to be involved tomorrow or even at the weekend,’ Thomas stated at his pre-match media briefing.
