Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has vowed not to underrate Arsenal ahead of the London derby on Wednesday.

Chelsea play host to the Gunners at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, and Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed that he’d play his best available squad for the game.

According to the Chelsea manager, he isn’t thinking about the FA Cup final against Leicester City just yet, as he maintains that the top four fight is a huge one that he can’t take for granted.

Tuchel told reporters: “We just have an eye on the players’ workload and on the statistics that we have, who is maybe overloaded on high speed and from that we will decide who is at risk of injury. Everyone who is not at risk of injury will be available for the game.

“It’s not the time to manage the game on Saturday now. Now is the time to manage the game on Wednesday. We’re in the middle of a race for the top four and cannot judge games.”
