Good morning and welcome to live coverage of Thomas Tuchel’s pre-match press conference ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Manchester City.
The Blues make the trip to the Etihad Stadium tomorrow lunchtime knowing that they have to pull off a victory to keep their slim title hopes alive – Tuchel’s side are currently ten points behind the top-flight leaders after 21 matches.
Tuchel has a good record against Pep Guardiola since taking charge at Stamford Bridge with three victories in four matches over the Manchester City head coach.
However, City came out victorious when the two sides met in September and Chelsea will need to be at their best to halt the reigning champions’ 12-game winning run.
Tuchel will deliver the latest team news but is not expected to reveal any new absences. Ben Chilwell (knee), Reece James (hamstring) and Trevoh Chalobah (hamstring) are set to miss the game.
We will bring you the latest from Tuchel’s press conference and have more to bring you before the German joins us from Cobham.
Live updates will appear below.
