Tuchel confirms Havertz and Pulisic return as Chelsea prepare for Atletico Madrid test

Tuchel confirms Havertz and Pulisic return as Chelsea prepare for Atletico Madrid test

Duo Return

Whilst yet to taste defeat, Thomas Tuchel’s side missed the opportunity to cement their place in the top 4 leading to some suggestions his Honeymoon period may be over.

The games continue to come thick and fast for Chelsea as following their draw with Southampton on the weekend, they face a tough test in the Champions League as they head to Bucharest to face La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid.

Thomas Tuchel provided injury updates in his press conference, with Havertz and Pulisic set to return, offering additional options to an attack that lacked bite of late.

 

One player who remains unavailable is Thiago Silva, who continues to remain on the sidelines.

 

He also said during the conference that he felt there was a disadvantage to Atletico playing the game away from their home stadium.

Business as usual for Hudson Odoi
