Thomas Tuchel has given an injury update on Mateo Kovacic and Christensen ahead of Chelsea vs Arsenal on Wednesday.
The German gaffer revealed that Christensen’s injury isn’t as bad as first predicted and he could feature in one of the two upcoming games against Leicester City.
When quizzed about his injury situation at Chelsea, Tuchel said; “He’s (Kovacic) not ready for tomorrow. The race is postponed to make it to the squad for Wembley.”
Then providing an update on Andreas Christensen’s situation, he explained; “It was better than feared, we are hoping for one of the 2 Leicester City games. The season is not finished for him hopefully. We want him back latest for Aston Villa.”
Therefore, both Mateo Kovacic and Christensen are ruled out of the Arsenal clash. But with everyone else fit, Tuchel will hope his side can turn up strongly against the Gunners at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday and record a big win before the FA Cup final.
