Chelsea blow: Thomas Tuchel reveals key midfielder will be missing vs Tottenham

Thomas Tuchel has been speaking to the media about Chelsea’s team news vs Tottenham.

Chelsea host Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday in a match which will have huge implications on the season going forward.

Both London clubs are expected to be fighting for the top four and given the magnitude of the clash, this could be the springboard for either team’s season.

However, ahead of the game, the Blues have been dealt a major injury blow, as revealed by Thomas Tuchel.

Kovačić ruled out vs Tottenham

Tuchel has revealed that Mateo Kovačić and Marcos Alonso will both be missing against Spurs.

Kovačić has picked up a knee injury whilst Alonso is close to joining FC Barcelona.

The Croatian was on the bench against Everton but is now going to be completely out of Sunday’s showdown.

The Blues are likely to once again go with the pairing of N’Golo Kante and Joringho in midfield.

Tuchel told the media: “Marcos Alonso is not in training and is trying to finalise his transfer.

“Kova is injured and has issues with his knee.”
