Thomas Tuchel has named four Chelsea players who will definitely not play against West Ham tomorrow afternoon.
The Hammers welcome Chelsea to the London Stadium in the Premier League for the 12:30 kick-off tomorrow.
West Ham are on the back of two defeats and a draw from our last three league games whilst the Blues haven’t lost a league game since September.
Chelsea are currently sitting top of the Premier League table, nine points and three places above fourth-placed West Ham.
It should be a cracking game of football tomorrow. The Hammers will have to be at their very best if we are to take three points from the contest. We may well have a decent chance of winning though, after Tuchel spoke at his press conference today.
Thomas Tuchel shares Chelsea injury update ahead of West Ham clash
The German spoke to reporters this afternoon ahead of the West Ham vs Chelsea game tomorrow.
Tuchel named four Blues players who will not be available for selection, as quoted by Football.London:
“Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo, Ben Chilwell and Trevoh Chalobah did not train today. So they are all out for tomorrow, but everybody else is available.”
Those four players have all been vitally important to Chelsea so far this season.
So not having them available will be a big blow for the Blues but a big boost for West Ham at the same time.
Chelsea have such a good squad though and anyone who Tuchel selects will be a world-class player.
The bottom line is that the West Ham players all need to be at the very top of their games. If David Moyes’s men all turn up and give 110%, we could undoubtedly cause an upset.
And Chelsea’s mini injury crisis will definitely improve our chances of doing just that.
