According to a recent report from football.london, the Chelsea head coach, Thomas Tuchel has confirmed five players who will not travel to Zenit due to injury and a positive Covid-19 test and that rotation is likely against the Russian side. Infoguidenigeria
“Maybe it seems to you like this, but it actually does not for us. We dropped some points against Man United, we found the solution to win a game at Watford, and we lost with a freak shot at the end of a game at West Ham.
“We’ve had this before, we had this before that we lose games. We don’t like it but we are not worried. We know what to do to win games.”
What’s the latest team news?
“Ben Chilwell is out, N’Golo Kante is out, Trevoh Chalobah is out, Jorginho is out and Mateo Kovacic is out.”
“The decisions are not made yet because we just had training, and good training, and we had a bit of an acute overload, due to injuries and schedule.
“We can handle the schedule, but we do have our injuries in some positions, like central midfield. The game tomorrow in isolation is not the problem in terms of being overloaded, it’s more the game that comes up on Saturday because we played the early match on Saturday, we have a late evening game in St Petersburg on Wednesday.
“The guys look fresh and are ready for tomorrow, so we can let any of the players and goalkeepers we have available play. But the problem is the next match on Saturday, we will lose time to sleep, we will arrive back in the very early morning of Thursday.

“On Saturday we will face a very intense team of Leeds, who have prepared the whole week for this match. So long story, short message: there’s a huge chance that we rest some players.
“And maybe, more importantly, we give some players the load who need the load, the minutes and rhythm, to put it another way. The decisions will be made tomorrow, but there’s a huge chance of that.” jamb result
When do you expect to have Mateo Kovacic back in training?
“We have bad news because Mateo was in training yesterday with a big smile and it was pure pleasure to have him back. But he tested positive today before the warm-up so he is isolating and out for several days which is a huge setback for him and all of us.”
Are you concerned about the spread of Covid as Spurs have had an outbreak?
“I was aware that this can happen. Me personally, I am not happy that it is happening as a manager and person. But this is the reality at the moment and we have to be ready to adapt to secure people’s health. We have to do the best thing possible to avoid transmission.”
How testing is it to deal with these high-pressure games and injuries and does it impact what you want to do with the team?
“Yes and no. Injuries, of course, because it’s not only one player missing but it has an effect on other players playing more who have an acute overload. And no because we can handle a schedule like this. It’s a huge difference in the detail to have three games in a week.
