This Sunday, Chelsea will face a Tottenham team serious hampered by inuries. But the Blues aren’t without injury concerns themselves, and very early in Thomas Tuchel’s press conference, the boss was asked about which of his stars would miss out.
The main concerns were over N’Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic, who have both missed games since the international break. According to Tuchel, Pulisic is definitely out, while Kante is definitely back.
In all honesty, that’s the way round most fans would prefer it.
Tuchel on Chelsea injuries: "No fresh concerns. Christian is in individual training and will not be in the squad. N'Golo is back in full shape in training and ready to play." #CFC

“N’Golo is back, and back in full shape and ready to play” the Chelsea boss explained in his presser, giving great hope to the idea that the France star will be fit to start.
The team were able to win without Kante, but there’s no denying that the midfield two in Tuchel’s formation looks very vulnerable without his legendary running to help out.
Even in a 3-0 win against Aston Villa we looked threatened, and we might not survive the same situation against Spurs.
