Team news

They were without Mateo Kovacic for the first leg and they will be again when his former club make the visit to Stamford Bridge.

“Mateo [Kovacic] will not be in the squad,” confirmed Tuchel to the media on Tuesday afternoon.

Antonio Rudiger is fit and available for selection as is Mason Mount, who landed awkwardly on his back during Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Fulham on Saturday.

Tuchel added: “I think that Toni [Rudiger] will play with a mask, because he trained yesterday in a mask.

“Everybody else is in training today, so hopefully we will have no new injuries today and that means everybody is available except for Mateo Kovacic.”

Tuchel hinted at minimal selection changes from the first leg but refused to confirm any of his decisions.

“I will not give any hint, I will wait until tomorrow (Wednesday) and make my decisions very late like I usually do,” continued the Chelsea head coach.

“I have my ideas in my mind, but I have been too long in the business to know that anything can happen in the last training sessions and I can change my mind.

“I need another sleep and tomorrow I will decide on the lineup. I will give it to my team first this is the way it is. I want to be sure we play a good match with the lineup we have, a strong performance.”
