Lukaku, Kovacic & more: Thomas Tuchel provides fitness updates on 6 Chelsea players
Romelu Lukaku and Mateo Kovacic will not be fit to play against Leicester on Saturday, Thomas Tuchel has told a press conference.
Lukaku was pictured running outside, and Tuchel has confirmed that he’ll be pushing to return to the squad from Sunday. However, the Leicester game comes too soon for him.
The boss will have a call to make on Timo Werner who will not start against Leicester but might be on the bench.
Thiago Silva is affected by travelling across the world and is unlikely to feature tomorrow. However, Christian Pulisic is ‘fine’ after a similar trip.
Finally, Mason Mount is ‘in training, hungry and fresh’, Tuchel has said which likely means that he’s fully fit for the Leicester game
