Chelsea vs Tottenham: He has knee injury – Tuchel reveals player to miss EPL game

Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has revealed that Mateo Kovacic will not feature for the Blues against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Tuchel said Kovacic would miss the Premier League tie against Tottenham because the former Real Madrid star has a knee injury.

The German said this on Friday during his pre-match press conference.

Chelsea head to the game following a 1-0 victory over Everton in their last game.

“It is the same for Kovacic, who is injured unfortunately with his knee, there has been a reaction,” Tuchel said.

“We decided to take a step back, to increase treatment time to reduce the stress that comes from training to have a normal reaction before we start again. Everybody else is available.”
