Tuchel hoping this risk doesn’t backfire

With Chelsea suffering from injuries and Covid-19 to the playing squad, Thomas Tuchel has been put in a tight corner over who to play and who to rest.

The Chelsea manager is currently short-staffed, and he must handle the team very well so things don’t get worse than this.

Tuchel revealed the degree of care that was taken which made Kai Havertz not feature against Everton despite a lack of strikers, simply because he was feeling ill.

Also, Jorginho was sent home into isolation when there was doubt over his test result, even though it returned negative.

Tuchel has said that he’s taking care with his squad, but he’s wary of it backfiring as it means he’d have to overuse some players who are available.

Tuchel said: “So we’re taking care, this is what we do. We want to have our best team but it was a concern because it backfires on people who should not play so many minutes.”
