‘It’s a long list’: Tuchel provides damning injury update ahead of FA Cup clash

Thomas Tuchel provided an update on the Blues hit by injuries and fatigue ahead of the FA Cup tie against Luton Town.

“The situation was very good before the final because we had only Ben Chilwell out but the situation changed dramatically,” the boss said. “We have a lot of players with physical overloads and we have some injuries from the match.

“It’s actually too much to comment about. It would be a long list so we need to see. We had training today, the physios and doctors are still working with the players and finding out.

“We can take the last decisions tomorrow morning when we have the departure to Luton and see who’s ready to play.”

Speaking about Reece James, Tuchel revealed, “He was on brilliant form but now with a huge overload on his shoulders.

“The recommendation was 20 minutes before the match and it was over 70 minutes in a final with extra tension and pressure.

“Hakim is not available for tomorrow as he was not available for the final unfortunately. He still feels uncomfortable and was not in team training today so he’s one of the guys who will miss the game tomorrow.”
