Chelsea lost to Arsenal last night in the Premier League, and Thomas Tuchel was left ruing too many squad rotations.
He chose to rest a number of key players in the match, ahead of some important games coming up and in the middle of a busy schedule.
Thomas Tuchel has named PSG centre back Marquinhos as a summer target, read the full story here.
The likes of N’Golo Kante and Antonio Rudiger were left at home entirely, but it appears he might not have had a choice.
As revealed after the game, there are injury concerns for Kante, who was left out due to pain in his achilles.
There are also doubts over Rudiger now, who was close to ‘the red zone’ – close to being injured.
Way I read this is that it's an issue being managed right now & with Kovacic also having an issue, Tuchel decided Kante couldn't be risked. He went on to explain he didn't pick Rudiger cos he's close to red zone (when you're vulnerable to injury) & already without Christensen.

So there will naturally be concerns over the pair for the FA Cup final on Saturday.
But as well as this, Christian Pulisic could also be a doubt after he was seen limping off at the end of the Arsenal game last night.
My final observation before leaving Stamford Bridge was that Pulisic was walking down the touchline with a bit of a limp #CFC
