Chelsea are set to face Wolves on Sunday, as the Premier League action returns.

Ahead of the clash head coach Thomas Tuchel has talked to the press providing the latest injury and Covid updates.

Like many Premier League clubs, the Blues were also said to be affected by the Covid outbreak.

That’s because players like Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz were missing from the matchday squad against Everton in the midweek.

On the latest Covid news, Tuchel said:

“No more positive tests but the lottery starts again tomorrow. We are happy Kai [Havertz] has a negative result and he is back in training.”

 

“Novody can enter the training ground without a negative test. We left Kai out because he felt unwell and we thought there was a possibility he might be positive.

 

“He was negative but we left him out, I had nobody on the bench left. We took this risk with consideration that health is first. But you can never be sure, tomorrow could be different.”

Providing injury news on Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, the Blues boss said:

“Jorginho is a doubt for Sunday as he is in pain, Ruben Loftus-Cheek is a doubt because he is in pain. Mateo Kovacic is back in his first training session today.

 

“We need to find a balance now as we have put everything on Jorginho’s shoulders. Ruben got injured yesterday, maybe we are forced to do the crazy stuff that we might not do.”
