And speaking in his pre-match presser Tuchel said:“The injury situation is that Callum Hudson-Odoi is still out, Ben Chilwell of course still out. Romelu will not travel with us due to his pain in the Achilles,” Tuchel explained.

“Azpi [Cesar Azpilicueta] is in the group he has tested several times negative and Ross Barkley is sick, he will not travel. Everybody else is in the squad.”

Pressed for comment on Chelsea’s chances of overcoming the deficit, Tuchel claimed: “What chance? Not the biggest chance given the first game’s results and given the competition and the opponent and the stadium we play. We never manage our input and our effort and our belief by the chances we have for our result. We never did and we will not start tomorrow by giving less because it is very unlikely that we make it.”
