Tuchel breaks bad news that his best midfielder and defender will miss Fulham match on Saturday

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel has provided an injury updates for his team ahead of the weekend game against Fulham.

It is not a good news for the German manager and fans of the club as his best midfielder and defender will miss the game on Saturday.

  • Antonio Rudiger will not be available against Fulham after picking up a knock against Real Madrid.
  • Mateo Kovacic is still injured and will also be unavailable for the Blues.
Asked about an injury update ahead of the Fulham clash, Tuchel told reporters at his press conference: “No, unfortunately not. He (Kovacic) trained but he is still not fully comfortable.

“Antonio Rudiger is also out, he picked up an injury in the last minute against Madrid.”

While Mateo Kovacic was expected to be missing for the game, Rudiger’s knock could have a serious impact on the game.

Thiago Silva could possibly be asked to play his 3rd game in this week, which could take a toll on his fitness.

With the two star players who are Tuchel’s favourites as midfielder and defender, the Blues are expected to still secure three points against Fulham.

There are no other fresh injury concerns according to Thomas Tuchel.

The three points are so important for Chelsea to cement their place at the top four.
