Tuchel confirms double injury blow for Chelsea

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed a double injury blow ahead of the club’s FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City tomorrow.

The Blues recently lost 1-0 to Porto in the Champions League, but still qualified for the semi-final with a 2-1 aggregate win.

They are scheduled to face the Cityzens at Wembley on Saturday and ahead of the game, Tuchel confirmed a double injury blow.

Andreas Christensen picked up a knock earlier this month, and he continues to remain on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, Mateo Kovacic is also absent with a hamstring injury picked up during a training session last week.

With Kovacic unavailable, Jorginho and Kante are expected to feature in the centre of the park against the Cityzens.

Christensen absence may see Thiago Silva continue in the back three. Kurt Zouma could be an option to replace the Brazilian.

The Blues have lost two of their previous three games in all competitions, and will start as the underdogs tomorrow.
