 “Yeah, unfortunately Thiago Silva and N’Golo Kante [positive for COVID-19], which is huge for us because they’re two key players”. Tuchel told Sky Sports

“We had the information today in the morning so it is quite challenging, but we will push. The guys who are here have our trust, have our belief, and we will push them and push things to the maximum.

“It hasn’t changed the situation since some weeks ago, but it is not the moment to constantly repeat it. I expressed my opinion and from here we are looking for solutions. I have trust in the guys who play and hopefully we can put out a strong performance because we need it.”
