Good afternoon from a freezing Stamford Bridge where Chelsea face Manchester a United in the Premier League.
The weather has turned cold and nasty across the country but it is anything but nasty with Tuchel’s Blues, who are unbeaten in their last nine games and smashed Juventus 4-0 in midweek in the Champions League.
The Blues are riding high at are likely to still be at kick off, with Man City needing to win by six clear goals against West Ham to overtake the Blues.
Chelsea were dealt a massive injury blow in midweek however when they lost both Ben Chilwell and N’Golo Kante to knee injuries.
Chilwell’s was the more serious, a partial tear of his left ACL, meaning he is out for at least the next six weeks. Depending on how he recovers, the club will also consider surgery in the new year if it doesn’t heal as planned.
Tuchel said it would be a “miracle” if Kante plays on Sunday but he wasn’t completely ruled out.
Kai Havertz is expected to be fit for the game, so is Romelu Lukaku after injury and he will be itching to play against his former club.
Kick off this afternoon is at 4.30pm and we will bring you all the pre-match build up, match action and post-match reaction throughout the remainder of the day.
