INJURY UPDATE FOR CHELSEA VS LIVERPOOL
Thomas Tuchel provided some encouraging news for the Blues, confirming that everyone, including Reece James, trained from start to finish.
“It’s fantastic news,” Tuchel stated. “From the earliest to the last minute, everyone participated in team training.”
” We’ve had no reactions so far, only positive ones, and I’m hoping that this continues and that we’ll have everyone available for Sunday after our last session tomorrow.”
“That’s a great question. I’m not sure I could answer your question right now, even if I wanted to.
“In the last two training sessions, he looked fantastic. Let’s wait till the next session to see if I’m insane enough to put him on the pitch, or if my rational side triumphs and we take it one step at a time.
“It would be a significant step, but he looked so powerful, confident, and involved in training yesterday and today that you are inclined to do it.” Let’s see what happens.
“The most important thing for him and us is that he’s back, and he’s confident in his ability to perform at this level.”
