Chelsea, led by Thomas Tuchel, prepare to face Arsenal this week before facing Leicester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley this weekend. However, the blues have had a variety of injury scares leading up to those games.
Mateo Kovacic, the team’s star midfielder, has been out with a hamstring injury for the past few games. Despite this, Thomas Tuchel is optimistic that the midfielder will be ready for these two games.
Andreas Christensen, on the other hand, was injured late in the game against Manchester City. Thomas Tuchel reported that the Denmark international has a strong chance of returning in time for the crucial games.
Although the seriousness of Andreas Christensen’s injury is unknown, Thomas Tuchel believes the centre back has a “50/50” chance of returning in time for the FA Cup final.
Antonio Rudiger is another player who is causing concern among supporters. In a match against Real Madrid, the German international announced that he had broken his jaw. Rudiger has been wearing a black mask on his face for the last two games because of this.
Despite his jaw injury, the centre-back is expected to be fit for the games against Arsenal and Leicester. The Blues will play Leicester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday, hoping to win their first trophy of the season.
