Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed yet another injury problem for the Blues ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Burnley.

Tuchel has revealed Chelsea will be without wing-back Marcos Alonso for the Saturday’s game against Burnley after the Spaniard suffered an ankle injury against Malmo on Tuesday.

The Blues will also be without Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and Mateo Kovacic.

Tuchel said: “No news on the match tomorrow for Romelu and Timo. Both are out. Christian Pulisic is with the group. Marcos Alonso and Mateo Kovacic are out.

“Marcos injured himself in the very last minute of the Malmo match, he tried to come out for training but the stress is too high on the ankle. Nothing big but too painful at the moment.”
