Chelsea vs Southampton: Tuchel confirms changes for Carabao Cup tie

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has confirmed that he will make some changes when his side host Southampton in tonight’s Carabao Cup round of 16 tie at Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel said this during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Southampton clash.

Chelsea head to the game following a 7-0 win over Norwich City at the weekend.

“There will be some changes, how much I don’t know yet,” Tuchel was quoted by Chelsea’s official website as saying.

“Sometimes you can never be fully sure, do you interrupt a good flow, is it better to keep everybody in there and playing to keep the momentum going or is it the moment to give some players a rest?

“But we have an excellent department at Cobham that helps us take these decisions – the guys who do the analysing, the guys who do the monitoring, the guys who treat the players, the medical department and everybody.

“We will put our heads together and get some decisions because we have to admit, we had a late game on Wednesday and an early game on Saturday and another one on Tuesday. So it’s very likely that we will have some changes.”

The kick-off time for the match is 7:45 pm.
