Chelsea are set to face Malmo on Wednesday in the Champions League group stage Matchday 3.

Ahead of the match the Blues’ full squad for the upcoming clash has been revealed.

Only Christian Pulisic was missing from the squad, as Thomas Tuchel confirmed:

“It is very easy, only Christian Pulisic is missing. “He got injured with the USA, he had a tough foul on his ankle.

 

“There is nothing to worry that we are hiding details or not telling you, I cannot give you the details because I am simply not a doctor.

 

“He has some setbacks from pain, not from a major injury or complication; it is simply pain in the ankle that disturbs him.

 

“When players like Christian, with their quick movements, they feel this pain and are not free in the movement, the recovery is not happening so you start all over again then the pain comes back when you reach a point, then you pause and start all over again.

 

“We are very close. He was so close to coming back to team training last week but then he had a setback and a little reaction in pain, nothing serious.

 

“He is very impatient, we can see him suffer in every meeting and when we see him here. He wants to be on the pitch and help us, to do his best but unfortunately, the injury takes its time.”

Here is the full Chelsea squad to face Malmo:

Goalkeepers: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcus Bettinelli, Edouard Mendy.

 

Defenders: Marcos Alonso, Andreas Christensen, Trevoh Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Cesar Azpilicueta.

 

Midfielders: Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Saul Niguez, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Ross Barkley, Mason Mount, Kai Havertz.

 

Forwards: Callum Hudson-Odoi, Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech.
