Thomas Tuchel has revealed that Ben Chilwell will miss at least six weeks with a ‘partial injury’ to his ACL.
“We are very positive because the first reaction of the body was positive. The full focus is towards the next six weeks to bring him back to the pitch to play. There’s no rush and pressure.
“We need to talk about it in six weeks. There is a best and worst case. It doesn’t help if we speak about worst-case scenarios. The decision is made. We will give updates if we have.”
“N’Golo [Kante] twisted his knee a little bit against Juventus and feels better but it seems he will be out for some days,” Tuchel added.
Both players were injured during the Juventus win but while Kante should be back soo, we will not see Chilwell back on the pitch in 2021.
Mateo Kovacic also misses the game, while the possibility of Romelu Lukaku featuring is not too high.
