Chelsea will kick off the games for the weekend with a home clash against West Brom on Saturday, and Thomas Tuchel will be aiming to get a victory in this game, as Chelsea continue to push for a top four finish.

Tuchel had previously revealed that he was going to use the international break to get some much needed rest, and he he must have gotten enough by now and will be working hard towards the upcoming fixtures.

However, former Chelsea winger Pat Nevin has revealed the difficulty of the job that Tuchel is faced with. According to the Chelsea legend, the problem of fitness and match sharpness is a big one for the manager to worry about, because nothing is certain. Already, Jorginho, Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante and Callum Hudson-Odoi have all had slight injury worries.

Pat Nevin wrote in his column for the official club website: “I bet Thomas Tuchel enjoyed the first few days of the international break, because he probably needed time to slow down himself after the constant work of the past few months.

“However, by now he will be desperate to start prepping for the weekend’s home tie against West Brom.

“The problem is, apart from studying the opposition, which has doubtless been done to death already, how can you fully prepare if you can’t be 100 per cent sure of who is going to be, not only available, but sharp too?”
