Thomas Tuchel has confirmed 2 Chelsea stars are ruled out of Premier League clash against against Tottenham

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Mateo Kovacic and Marcos Alonso will both miss the Blues’ Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur, as per football.london.

In his press conference ahead of the game against London rivals Spurs on August 14, Tuchel discussed the availability of the duo.

Kovacic was an unused substitute in Chelsea’s season-opening 1-0 victory over Everton on August 6. He appears to have incurred a knee injury which will keep him out of Sunday’s game against Tottenham.

Meanwhile, there has been much speculation over Alonso’s future, who wants a move to Barcelona. He may be getting his transfer as Tuchel has said regarding his situation:

“Marcos Alonso is not in training at the moment as he tries to finalise his move, so he won’t be in contention for Sunday.”

The Spaniard reportedly asked Tuchel not to be selected for the win over Everton last weekend.

The Blues signed Brighton & Hove Albion left-back Marc Cucurella for £58.77 million only leading to more rumors regarding an exit for Alonso.

Chelsea will be looking to build on their win over Everton when they host Spurs at Stamford Bridge. Antonio Conte’s side also won their season-opening fixture 4-1 against Southampton and are being tipped to contend with the Blues for a top-four finish.
