Chelsea traveled to Sweden to face Malmo football club in their upcoming Uefa Champion League clash that will take place tomorrow but N’golo Kante did not travel with the team.
The team said Kante will remain in London to contine to recive treatment and to give him time to recover.
Speaking at his pre-match media conference at Cobham, prior to flying to Malmo, Tuchel said:
‘These four players are unfortunately still out. For Timo, Romelu and Kova it is no surprise. For Mason, he does not feel really better and to stop any speculation, it is not Covid. He is negative for that.
‘He is just ill and does not feel good enough to take part in training or take part in the trip to Malmo.
‘The good news is Christian Pulisic is back and back in the squad for tomorrow.’
‘We are in a good place and I have the feeling that the group knows why we are in a good place,’ he said.
‘We know what it takes to have these kinds of results and know what effort we have to put in.
We know what we have to do for it and that makes us confident and at the same time, it sets the standards that you need to set every single match that arrives, and it’s coming again tomorrow.
‘We’ll start from scratch, it’s a Champions League away game, and we want to win. We’re self-confident enough to say it. We know what it takes and it is up to us to deliver.’
