Asked to provide an injury update for Chelsea’s upcoming game against Watford, Thomas Tuchel told the media (via Chelsea FC): “He [Romelu Lukaku] came on and we continued to train. There is no reaction from his injured ankle. He is ready to progress, this is where he is.
“For sure out – Chilwell, Kovacic, and N’Golo Kante.”
The coach then added: “We have some doubts of players, more time and examinations. Reece James, Jorginho and Timo. They all trained today but there will be some last-minute decisions.”
The gaffer did not specify why Reece, Jorginho, and Werner are doubts. However, there doesn’t seem to be a major injury to any of the three players so hopefully, they can be fit for this game.
Chelsea are currently the Premier League leaders with one point above second-placed Manchester City. The Blues will be hoping to return to winning ways against Watford after playing a 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea will take on Watford tomorrow night at Vicarage Road.
