Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel insists he doesn’t regret the decision to sell Tammy Abraham to Roma during the summer.

That’s despite Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner facing a number of weeks out with injuries.

When asked if he had any regrets about letting Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi leave, Tuchel said: “No [regrets]. Football does not work like this. You cannot keep a squad of 40 players.

“Do you think that Tammy, Oli and Michy would be in perfect shape now after maybe not being in the 18-man squad for the past six weeks?

“In real life you have to focus on 19 or 20 players. This is what we do. It’s a lot of bad luck that now we have two injured players in the same position.

“We have to find solutions and we will find solutions. There is absolutely no worry about the decisions.”
