Thomas Tuchel has been taking his press conference ahead of Chelsea’s game against West Ham this weekend, and the manager has confirmed the one piece of injury news that no fans wanted to hear.

As suspected, both Antonio Rudiger and Mateo Kovacic are out of Sunday’s game against West Ham.


They missed the disaster of a match against Arsenal this week, and our prospects of playing any better than we did in that humiliating 4-2 loss are significantly diminished by the fact that our best defender and midfielder this season will both be out.

It sounds like both will have the chance to return for the Manchester United game next week, but that’s no use to use on Sunday when we try and break a 3 game losing run at home against a strong West Ham side who beat us in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

Worried yet? We certainly are.
