Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has said he will not have four players available for Saturday’s clash against Leeds United.

 

Tuchel admitted he has particular concerns about midfielder, N’Golo Kante.

 

Kante hasn’t played since a 4-0 win over Juventus in the Champions League on November 23.

 

Tuchel is hopeful the France midfielder will return to training next week.

“We are always worried when we have to live and play without N’Golo because he is an exceptional and unique player all over the world.

 

“In my personal opinion you cannot find a second N’Golo so of course, we are worried, but I’m also worried if he’s just missing some days.

 

“Now it is a slightly too long break again and we hope that he comes back to team training on Tuesday,” he said.

 

Tuchel also confirmed he will be without Trevoh Chalobah and Ben Chilwell through injuries, while Mateo Kovacic tested positive for COVID-19.

 

“Trevoh Chalobah is still out, Kovacic is obviously out, N’Golo Kante out for tomorrow and Ben Chilwell too,” he added.

    Get well soon n’golo

  2. May God let us let reap the fruit our labour, mo another person no come they enjoy am, i felt deeply sorry for frank lampard, his the one that bought all these superstars and did not wait to see them ripe and deliver, Thomas tuchel is benefiting from what he did not work for, i think players usually intentiinally play foolishly to when they hate their coach and wanted him sacked. I don’t also know the reason why big football clubs don’t always have a little bit of patience this days, the players are the one’s that want to play not the coach, they will want to win and not lose but their opponent’s are not also their to play and lose no matter what so that’s just it. and when it’s not your there is nothing you can do about it even if you are playing against third division.
