Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Southampton on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel revealed the players didn’t train on Thursday.

According to Tuchel, Thursday was for recovery after Wednesday’s game against Juventus.

Tuchel said: “We did not train a lot. Yesterday was for recovery, and today the guys who played 90 minutes in Turin did not do a lot. So it’s been business as usual.”
