EPL: Tuchel confirms two top Chelsea stars misses training ahead Southampton clash


Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, on Friday confirmed that two players, Romelu Lukaku and Hakim Ziyech missed his side’s training ahead of their Premier League tie with Southampton Saturday due to little problems.

Tuchel also revealed that Callum Hudson-Odoi is still out of Chelsea’s squad ahead of the Southampton clash at St. Mary’s Stadium.

Tuchel’s men head to the game after losing 3-1 to Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-final first-leg tie in mid-week.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Tuchel said: “I don’t hope so. Callum Hudson-Odoi is still out, and we are a bit in doubt with Romelu and Hakim Ziyech. We need to see.

“They were not in training due to little problems. But we hope to have them in training. We need tests and confirmation from training at three o’clock to see if they are available for tomorrow.”

The kick-off time for Southampton vs Chelsea is 3 pm.
