Leicester City handed Chelsea boost by Thomas Tuchel


Chelsea could be without as many as five players when they welcome Leicester City to Stamford Bridge on Thursday (May 19).

Timo Werner, Mateo Kovacic and Callum Hudson-Odoi will all miss out, while Kai Havertz faces a late fitness test on his hamstring problem.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has admitted he does not know whether defender Andreas Christensen will be involved against Leicester. The Dane ruled himself out of the FA Cup final last weekend.

“I’m not sure yet if he’s involved tomorrow and on the weekend,” said Tuchel. “Andreas came in the morning of the match to speak to me and tell me that he’s not ready to play the match, not to start or be on the bench.

“He had his reasons, they stay private and confidential. But it was not the first time as you can see over the last weeks that we had some of the same situations.

“That’s why he did not play so regularly in the last times. We thought we were in a good progression and development, but the conversation took place, we had to respect it and we of course respected it.

“It was very short notice now before the cup final, and not only this match, other matches in the other weeks. There’s no chance I have any prediction for tomorrow or the weekend.”
