Chelsea travel to Newcastle United on Saturday before hosting Malmö in the Champions League on November 2 and end the week by hosting Burnley on November 6.
“We hope Azpi will be back,” Tuchel said.
“He injured his shoulder yesterday after a little accident in training.
“He fell on his shoulder and it’s very painful but it’s Azpi and he’s a badass.
“Andreas needed surgery on his tooth and he should be back, if there are no complications, in practice Thursday.
“Ruben felt pain after training in the hip joint and I hope we can take it until Saturday.”
