Thomas Tuchel confirms fresh Chelsea injury blow

Thomas Tuchel confirms Kante injury blow

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed an injury blow ahead of the Blues’ Premier League clash against West Bromwich Albion.

The west London giants are currently fourth in the league standings, two points ahead of West Ham United.

They are scheduled to host the Baggies in tomorrow’s early kick-off and prior to the game, Tuchel has confirmed an injury blow.

N’Golo Kante picked up a minor hamstring injury on France duty and Tuchel has revealed that he has yet to return to full training.

Kante will definitely miss the Baggies encounter and he is also a major doubt to face Porto in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final.

In his absence, Mateo Kovacic is likely to partner Jorginho in the centre of the park. Billy Gilmour may feature off the bench if required.

The Blues are in a stunning run of form with a 15-match unbeaten run. In the league, they are undefeated in 10 games with six wins and four draws.
