Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel revealed why Chelsea midfielder Kai Havertz missed the 2-1 victory against Leicester City on Tuesday night.

The Germany international came off the bench for the Blues in the FA Cup final defeat to the Foxes on Saturday.

According to Tuchel, Havertz missed the game against Leicester City due to a hamstring injury.

“Kai unfortunately got injured a little bit at Wembley,” Tuchel said ahead of kick-off against Leicester.

“He felt his hamstring slightly.

“Hopefully, we will have him back in the squad for Aston Villa on Sunday but we are not sure yet.

“We do have Kova [Mateo Kovacic] back on the bench tonight, which gives us a huge boost.”
