Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has named the Blues player who will miss his side’s Premier League clash against West Ham United on Saturday evening.
According to Tuchel, midfielder Mateo Kovacic will take no part in Chelsea’s clash against West Ham at the London Stadium.
The German said this on Friday during his pre-match press conference.
Chelsea head to the game after playing a 0-0 draw with Brighton in their last fixture on Tuesday.
“Mateo Kovacic is still out, but everybody else is available,” Tuchel said.
Tuchel added, “For me personally, I think we can hope for Fulham but don’t take that as medical advice. Maybe the physios and doctors will kill me for that, but I think it’s maybe possible to be back again against Fulham, which is in between the Madrid games.
“Madrid [first leg] will be very close because he has not trained with the team, so Fulham is more realistic.”
The kick-off time for West Ham vs Chelsea is 5.30 pm.
