Here is the latest Chelsea fitness and injury updates ahead of the tie.

Christian Pulisic

The 23-year-old is a doubt after returning to individual training last week. A late decision will be made on the American’s inclusion to whether he will return to the side.

“The game against Aston Villa is maybe too close, I hope I am wrong,” Tuchel said following Chelsea’s win over Spurs. “This is my impression with him not in training so far. Let’s see tomorrow (Monday).

“Maybe he had a good progression today. Maybe it is possible. It would be super nice to have him but it is doubtful.”

N’Golo Kante
