Lukaku, Jorginho ands James are all key player for Chelsea.


The Blues will be favourites to beat West Ham this afternoon. They did have somewhat of a mini injury crisis heading into the game.

It appears as though it may not be as bad as first feared for the blues though.

Thomas Tuchel shares triple injury boost for Chelsea ahead of West Ham game

The German was speaking to reporters yesterday afternoon ahead of the West Ham vs Chelsea game.

Tuchel suggested that two of his key players, Jorginho and James, could both start against David Moyes’s Hammers at the London Stadium today, as quoted by Football.London:

“They are available, yeah, they are training and available.”

Tuchel then responded to a question about Lukaku:

“He is in training, he wants to start, he is eager to start and like you asked before, now it is the whole team.”

West Ham will have to be at our very best this afternoon if we are to beat the Blues.

If all of those three players mentioned are in fact fit to start, we will have a seriously difficult task on our hands.
