This Sunday will make it matchday 3 in the third Premier League match at Elland Road against Leeds United, as Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel delivered an injury update.
The German tactician expert acknowledge that he might not have Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, or Marcos Alonso available for the matchup with Jesse Marsch’s team.
The Blues produced a commanding effort against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend as a response to their underwhelming performance in their 1-0 triumph against Everton a fortnight earlier.
Tuchel’s team had a number of opportunities and was confident in possession, but they were furious that Spurs were able to earn a 2-2 draw thanks to a few disputed refereeing decisions.
After a fight on the sidelines, Tuchel and Antonio Conte were both dismissed from the game.
According to The Mirror,
Chelsea’s manager might receive a protracted suspension for his remarks about referee Anthony Taylor following the game.
Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante are expected to miss this weekend’s games with knee and hamstring ailments, respectively, causing yet another setback for the west London team.
No doubt, left-back Marcos Alonso, who “is not in training” as he works to “finalize his transfer” to Barcelona, will not be available to them.
