Tuchel provides mixed Chelsea team news update ahead of Southampton

Chelsea vs Southampton

Chelsea will be back in Premier League action on Saturday the 2nd of October.

The Blues are set to host Southampton as they look to bounce back from two recent losses.

Thomas Tuchel’s men were handed their first defeat of the season by Manchester City in the Premier League last weekend.

The Londoners then fell to Juventus by the same scoreline, 1-0, in the Champions League earlier this week.

Southampton, though, should prove a much easier task for Chelsea to navigate. The Saints have not won a single Premier League game this term, instead drawing four and losing two.

Tuchel on Mount & James

Ahead of the game on Saturday, Thomas Tuchel would speak to the media this afternoon.

During his press conference, the German provided updates on the fitness of several Chelsea stars.

All of Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, N’Golo Kante and Reece James missed out vs Juventus in midweek, with Kante out due to Covid-19 and already confirmed as set to miss the Southampton clash.

And, when speaking on Friday, Tuchel provided an update on James, too, confirming that his England call-up must have been a misunderstanding, with the stopper seemingly out of contention to feature tomorrow afternoon:

“When I saw it I thought maybe Reece goes with the water polo teams as he is training in the pool. I am surprised. My understanding is that he will not go.”

On a more positive note, the Chelsea boss confirmed that Mason Mount will be back in action this weekend.
