Fresh injury blow for Chelsea as Thomas Tuchel reveals team news ahead of Norwich clash

Chelsea play Norwich City in the premier league tomorrow and manager Thomas Tuchel was on media duties this afternoon.

Tuchel came with some bad news from the injury desk for Chelsea as he revealed that right wing-back Reece James would be missing the clash against Norwich with a muscle injury.

It comes as a huge blow for Chelsea given that Reece James had just returned from a hamstring injury and the Blues’ faithful would be hoping that the new injury is not one that keeps the defender out on a long-term.

Thomas Tuchel: “We felt it during the match because it didn’t get better so we are worried. So we need further examinations. It’s obvious what he does and can give the team, so not good news at the moment. Setback for sure, I hope not a big one.”

James is the only injury issue for Chelsea as Tuchel revealed that everyone else is fine apart from Ben Chilwell, with the left wing-back “not close” to returning to the pitch despite starting individual training just recently.
