Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has a huge decision to make ahead of the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Tuchel has been criticised for not having his preferred front three since the start of the season, as the Blues boss has often chopped his attack for each game.

Kai Havertz had been the preferred striker upfront over the past two months  but Romelu Lukaku has looked to be a man in form over the last two games.

Tuchel has a huge decision to make, and the Blues boss has said Lukaku and Havertz aren’t compatible when playing together which is why he’d pick one for the FA Cup final.

“I can play both, although they lacked a bit of a perfect fit together,” said Tuchel.

“It’s very likely that’s it’s one of the two but we will not give the line-up today.

“Romelu played and scored lately, he did everything to stay on the pitch and it will be our final call tomorrow morning.”
