Thomas Tuchel confirmed in his press conference today ahead of West Brom game tomorrow that the squad will be without key midfielder, Ngolo Kante for some few days.
Kante suffered a knock during the international break and came back to Cobham earlier than the rest to begin his recovery but he is still yet to recover fully and didn’t join the squad to train yesterday.
What did Tuchel say about team news?
Everybody was in training today, except N’Golo Kante who was doing individual work. Everybody else was out on the pitch and that’s good news.
When also asked if Kante would miss the UCL against FC Porto, Tuchel said:
Yes, probably. He is doing individual training and tomorrow the game and he can’t be with the squad.
Then we have just three days to prepare. We have a muscle injury, as we communicated with the national team. So my realistic approach is to think about Porto, maybe the second game against Porto.
