Chelsea Boss, Thomas Tuchel has two injury worries ahead of Thursday’s match against Leicester City. Kai Havertz and Timo Werner were both forced to sit out of the Blues FA Cup final loss, joining Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi on the treatment table.
Andreas Christensen is also said to have refused to play at Wembley prompting to suspicion that he may have played his last game for the London based outfit before leaving for Barcelona in.
After more than 120 minutes of FA Cup action, The Ex-PSG Boss will have to assess the fitness levels of other players with Thiago Silva likely to be dropped.
Trevoh Chalobah and Madrid-Bound, Antonio Rudiger should be fit to play again, while Reece James and Marcos Alonso will continue to play out wide unless the German tactician decides to give Malang Sarr a chance to get some minutes.
N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic were both declared fit for the final – rather unexpectedly – and the France international could potentially replace the Croatian who is recovering from a fresh knee injury.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek has impressed recently and but Jorginho should start ahead of Englishman, while Hakim Ziyech’s fresh legs might earn him a starting spot in the attack over Christian Pulisic.
Despite missing a crucial penalty in the shootout against Jurgen Klopp’s side, Mason Mount is unlikely to be benched and Romelu Lukaku returning to XI to lead the attack ahead of Kai Havertz .
