Tuchel is relieved there have been no new injury cases and confirms there have been no additional Coronavirus positive cases identified in the squad. They play Manchester City very soon, which may force him to adjust some players for today’s game. We need to take points away from Manchester City in the title race, and the Etihad Stadium is the ideal location to do so.
The good news is that two key players have resumed full training. Both Kante and Thiago Silva have returned a negative test and will be available for today’s match. Tuchel has stated, however, that starting them today, even if they are in top form, will be a gamble. He does, however, promise to make the best choice possible for the pair. We imagine that they could be given a few minutes to charge up for the weekend.
