“Pulisic still injured, Kante injured, Tammy Abraham is injured.”
What is the issue with Abraham?

What is the latest with Ruben Loftus-Cheek?
“Ruben’s in the squad again tomorrow, We haven’t had great opportunity to get Ruben game time as much as we’d want.
“I felt at Tottenham he could be an impact in some sort in the game, and that would have been great for him to get some minutes.
“Bayern was a different animal, so I took a different decision to get some good training in the week.
“But now he’s back in the squad.
“It would mean a lot to him [to play] and me for him to get some time on the field now.
“It’s a lonely place, it’s a long time. He was in a very good run of form last year.
“He was playing really well and getting confidence. And he hasn’t kicked a ball for me.
“With the ability he has got, I think he’s one of the most exciting English midfield and Premier League players, so we all want him back, and him more than anyone.”
What response have you seen from the Chelsea players?
“Well the response will be what we see tomorrow. The lads are fine in training, they looked determined this morning.
“Things like this happen in football, there are moments, there are games where it’s a tough match, a tough game, and that opens your eyes somewhat.
“And then the tester then is how you come back from that, individually and collectively.
“So I’m interested to see the reaction, it feels it will be good, the determination in training is there to see.
“Our last Premier League performance was very, very good, so we have to carry on from that.”
