Kante & Pulisic updates provided following Chelsea’s meeting with Liverpool


Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has this evening provided updates on the wellbeing of both N’Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic.

Havertz on target

Tuchel and co. were of course back in action a short time ago.

The Blues made the trip to Anfield, aiming to keep alive their flawless opening to the new Premier League campaign.

After picking up an ankle problem late in the first-half, N’Golo Kante was ultimately forced to make way at the break, before being replaced by Mateo Kovacic.

In turn, speaking during his post-match media duties on Merseyside, it came as little surprise when Thomas Tuchel was asked for an update on the wellbeing of his star midfielder.

And the German went on to confirm that Kante has reaggravated an existing ankle injury, ahead of a potential spell on the sidelines:

On Christian Pulisic, who has missed Chelsea’s last two outings after returning a positive test for Covid-19, Tuchel added:
