Chelsea: Thomas Tuchel

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel revealed he was worried by the injuries suffered by N’Golo Kante and Ben Chilwell during their Champions League win against Juventus on Tuesday. Trevoh Chalobah, Reece James, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Timo Werner all got on the scoresheet to ensure they are now favorites to top their group. The duo is now a major doubt for the Premier League clash against Manchester United on the weekend. Tuchel later revealed that both suffered knee injuries with Chilwell needing the help of the physios to leave the field.

“It worries me because he was in such a fantastic moment – like Reece (James) on the other side,” Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said. “They were in the best shape they could possibly be, so strong and so confident and with such a lot of quality. He was in a lot of pain, now he feels a bit better. He has an examination tomorrow (Wednesday) to be more precise. Hopefully, we get away, fingers crossed, with not too bad news. With N’Golo, it’s a bit the same. He got stronger and stronger in the first half but twisted his knee a little bit. Hopefully, it’s not too bad.”

“The crowd loves it and I’m absolutely convinced that everybody loves it,” he added. “This is what makes teams special, not only the superstars and not only the best players from abroad, which we also have in our squad, but it’s the mix of youngsters as well.”
