Thomas Tuchel confirms four Chelsea players will miss West Ham game

Thomas Tuchel confirms four Chelsea players will miss West Ham game

West Ham vs Chelsea

Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off will see two London-based outfits go head-to-head.

West Ham are set to host rivals Chelsea at the London Stadium at 12:30 pm UK time.

Chelsea will kick off in east London eager to maintain their spot atop the Premier League.

Two draws from five means that Thomas Tuchel’s side have surrendered much of their advantage in the title race, but they still remain one point above Manchester City and two points clear of Liverpool.

With such a small gap now in place, however, Chelsea can not afford to drop any points this weekend.

And, though West Ham are 4th in the division, the Hammers have lost two and drawn one of their last three Premier League outings, and therefore could be easy pickings for a Chelsea side who maintain the best defensive record in the English top-flight.

Thomas Tuchel confirms four Chelsea stars out of West Ham game

Ahead of his side’s showdown with West Ham, Thomas Tuchel would speak to the press on Friday afternoon.

When doing so, the former PSG boss provided updates on the fitness of several of his players.

Trevoh Chalobah picked up an issue during the Blues’ 2-1 win over Watford in midweek. And Tuchel went on to confirm that the defender, along with Ben Chilwell, Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante, have been ruled out of the game.

“We did not train today with Kovacic, N’Golo [Kante], Chilwell and Chalobah. They are all out [of the game at West Ham tomorrow].”

Timo Werner and Reece James look set to be available, however:
