Thomas Tuchel issues Cesar Azpilicueta & Romelu Lukaku fitness updates


Thomas Tuchel has issued updates on the fitness of Romelu Lukaku and Cesar Azpilicueta, admitting that he is not sure whether the pair will be available for Chelsea’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against Real Madrid.

The Blues responded well to successive defeats against Brentford and Real on Saturday, romping to a 6-0 victory over Southampton at St Mary’s.

The result was achieved without Azpilicueta, who missed the game after testing positive for Covid-19, while Lukaku was also absent with a knock.

Speaking at full-time, Tuchel admitted he was uncertain about whether the duo would return in time for his side’s trip to the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday.

“He [Lukaku] wasn’t in training yesterday, he was in too much pain,” he said
