Thomas Tuchel confirms long injury list ahead of FA Cup clash with Luton

Chelsea would be looking to move on from the Carabao Cup final disappointment as they face lower division side Luton town in the FA Cup tomorrow.

Coach Thomas Tuchel was speaking to the media this afternoon ahead of Chelsea’s FA Cup fixture on Wednesday night and the German gave some quite disappointing updates ahead of the game.

Tuchel confirmed that Chelsea will still be without Hakim Ziyech who injured his Achilles against Lille in the champions league last week.

The gaffer also admitted that there are a lot of Chelsea players on overload after over 120 minutes of football in Saturday’s final against Liverpool. Hence, some key players could be missing in action tomorrow.

The Chelsea manager didn’t mention names but he did confirmed that there is a long injury list.

“It’s too much to comment. We have a long list.” said Tuchel.

It would therefore come as no surprise at all to see a lot of changes in the Chelsea lineup tomorrow and we expect a few academy players to be in contention for a start.
