Chelsea vs Man City: Tuchel to be without two key players for EPL clash

Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, will be without two key players when the Blues tackle Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon at Stamford Bridge.

The two Chelsea players are Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount.

Tuchel confirmed this on Friday during his pre-match press conference.

Chelsea head to the game after defeating Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup in midweek.

“Christian Pulisic is still out,” Tuchel said.

“Mason Mount is also out as this game comes too soon for him, after picking up a minor injury from the Aston Villa match in midweek.

“He has made a big step in his recovery from that, huge progress, but unfortunately not enough to be involved because of the game coming earlier as a 12.30 pm [kick-off] on Saturday.”

“Mason is very disappointed to miss out,” added Tuchel.

The kick-off time for Chelsea vs Man City is 12.30 pm.
