Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has confirmed the player expected to miss his side’s Premier League clash against Manchester City on Saturday evening.
Tuchel said Mateo Kovacic remains sidelined through injury and will miss Chelsea’s away Premier League tie against Man City at Etihad.
Tuchel said this on Friday during his pre-match press conference.
Chelsea head to the game after eliminating Real Madrid from the Champions League on Wednesday, while Pep Guardiola’s men knocked PSG out from the competition.
“In terms of the injury list, it does not change much,” Tuchel said.
“We still have the training to go later today where things could change, but right now, everyone is ready apart from Kova.
“Kova is unfortunately still out. We hope to bring him back for the game against Arsenal and then hopefully for Wembley [FA Cup final against Leicester City].
“It will be tight for the Arsenal game but for tomorrow, for sure, he will be out. Everyone else is available for tomorrow’s match.”
The kick-off time for Man City vs Chelsea is 5.30 pm.
