Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed four Chelsea players won’t play Tuesday’s Champions League game against Malmo.
Romelu Lukaku (ankle), Timo Werner (hamstring) and Mateo Kovacic (hamstring) are injured while Mount has not recovered sufficiently from the illness that forced him to miss our weekend game in Newcastle.
Speaking at his pre-match media conference at Cobham, prior to flying to Malmo, Tuchel said:
“These four players are unfortunately still out. For Timo, Romelu and Kova it is no surprise. For Mason, he does not feel really better and to stop any speculation, it is not Covid. He is negative for that.
“He is just ill and does not feel good enough to take part in training or take part in the trip to Malmo.”
