Thomas Tuchel provides update on Chelsea’s injuries after Carabao Cup win over Southampton

On a night when a number of fringe players failed to make their case for a more consistent time, the German revealed his pre-game plans were somewhat compromised by injuries to three players.

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.”
