Tuchel provides Mount, James and Kante Update.
Thomas Tuchel gives updates on Chelsea youngsters ahead of the champions league match with Juventus tomorrow.
The Blues boss has ruled out Mason Mount, Reece James, Christian Pulisic and N’Golo Kante.
Kante tested positive for Covid-19 this afternoon and will miss Juventus and Southampton match over the weekend.
Tuchel shared this during Champions League Prematch press: “Christian, Reece and Mason are out due to injury and N’Golo tested positive [for Covid] and needs to quarantine according to government protocols.”
When asked about Mount, he said: “I absolutely don’t know, we have to see. In the end, it will be a matter of hours as to whether he makes it or not.”
He also said: “Reece’s injury is still very painful and it will come down to pain management in the end. How much he can accept but right no we’re looking at a minimum of one more week.”
“But both have now been ruled out, alongside Christian Pulisic”.
