Thomas Tuchel outlines when Andreas Christensen could return for Chelsea

Thomas Tuchel outlines when Andreas Christensen could return for Chelsea

Chelsea vs Arsenal

Wednesday evening will see London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal face off at Stamford Bridge.

The tie is of little importance to Arsenal, who currently sit five points adrift of 6th-placed Liverpool in the Premier League table, having played one game more.

As a result, their season is all but over, with nothing left to play for on Wednesday but pride.

Chelsea, on the other hand, still have it all to play for, with Champions League football not yet secured for next season.

At present, the Blues sit 3rd in the English top-flight on 64 points, but 5th-placed West Ham could still technically catch them, with a six-point gap between the sides with three games to play.

Tuchel provides Christensen & Kovacic updates

Ahead of Wednesday’s game, Thomas Tuchel held his latest press conference on Tuesday.

When speaking to the media, the German provided updates on both Andreas Christensen and Mateo Kovacic.

Kovacic has missed the Londoners’ last eight games across all competitions, and is once again set to sit out against Arsenal:

“He’s not ready for tomorrow. The race is postponed to make it to the squad for Wembley”

Christensen, meanwhile, limped off vs Manchester City at the weekend, with Tuchel having revealed his hope on Tuesday that the defender will return for one of the club’s two upcoming meetings with Leicester City. The first comes in the form of the FA Cup final on May 15th, with a league clash to follow three days later.

“It was better than feared, we are hoping for one of the 2 Leicester games. The season is not finished for him hopefully. We want him back latest for Villa”
