Thomas Tuchel has revealed that Mateo Kovacic and Antonio Rudiger will miss out on Chelsea’s Premier League match against West Ham on Sunday.
“For Sunday they [Kovacic and Rudiger] are not back. But no other new injuries.”
If the last match is anything to go by, Rudiger’s absence may well affect Chelsea’s defensive solidity. Kovacic is also a big miss for the Blues as he is the most consistent midfielder for the club when he isn’t injured.
Tuchel will have find a way to cope with the two absentees as they look to widen the gap between themselves and Spurs to 8 points with a win.
