Chelsea press conference live: Thomas Tuchel on FA Cup, Thiago Silva, Kai Havertz and more

Chelsea take a brief break from Premier League action tomorrow evening as they face Barnsley in the FA Cup fifth round.

The game will be Thomas Tuchel’s first taste of the historic competition and the Blues are heavy favourites to advance to the quarter-finals.

Barnsley, who sit 13th in the Championship, have won just one of their last five matches in all competitions.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are unbeaten under Tuchel – three wins and a draw – and are expected to progress at what will be a freezing cold Oakwell.

Changes are anticipated to be made to the Blues side, with several lesser-used members of the first-team squad likely to be given minutes.

Thiago Silva will miss the game due to injury and Tuchel will deliver updates Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic, who both missed the victory over Sheffield United on Sunday.

We’ll have live updates from the Chelsea head coach’s press conference below.
