Heartbreaking: Thomas Tuchel issues Ben Chilwell and N’Golo Kante injury updates ahead of Man Utd clash

Chelsea boss has provided updates on the state of Ben Chilwell and N’Golo Kante who sustained injuries during Chelsea’s resounding Champions League win over Juventus.

It was a dominant 4-0 victory as Tuchel’s men inflict the Italian side’s heaviest ever defeat in the competition.

It wasn’t quite the perfect night for Tuchel and Chelsea however, as the influential pair of Kante and Chilwell were both forced off with injury concerns ahead of the visit of Manchester United in the Premier League this weekend.

While speaking with BT sport after the match Tuchel revealed: “[Chilwell] has a sharp pain in the knee. N’Golo as well. He twisted his knee a little bit, we will tell you tomorrow more when both will be examined,” Tuchel told BT Sport after the match.

“These are very sad because N’Golo was fantastic until this moment when he went off. Chilly is in a fantastic moment, so so important and for him personally so so strong, so we hope for the best.”

While Tuchel awaits further clarification on the extent of the setbacks, the news comes as a blow to the Premier League table-toppers who could be without the key pair on Sunday.

Weekend opponents Manchester United claimed a 2-0 win in their European fixture against Villarreal as caretaker manager Michael Carrick steered the Red Devils back to winning ways ahead of their Stamford Bridge visit.

Its unfortunate for Kante who has missed a few games already this season through injury but has looked sharp of late having netted against old side Leicester in last weekend’s comfortable 3-0 triumph at the King Power.
