Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed two Chelsea players will miss Saturday’s Premier League game against Fulham at Stamford Bridge.

Mateo Kovacic suffered a ‘little setback’ in training while Antonio Rudiger suffered an injury in the game against Real Madrid.

“Unfortunately he [Mateo Kovacic] is still injured,” said Tuchel.

“He trained with us but he’s still not fully confident. He felt something at the end of the training so he’s not available.

“Before training today, we thought Kova has a big chance to join us latest for Madrid, maybe even for Fulham, so now we have a little setback with him. I don’t want to be too negative. Let’s see how he feels tomorrow.

“All other players are available except for Toni Rudiger who got injured in the last minute of the Madrid game. I am quite positive for Toni [being available] for Wednesday.”
