Hudson-Odoi, Pulisic, Havertz: Chelsea team news and injury updates ahead of Atletico Madrid

Chelsea dropped points in the Premier League for only the second time under Thomas Tuchel as they drew 1-1 with Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues are now unbeaten in seven across all competitions, winning five of those games, but failure to beat the Saints means they missed the chance to close the gap on Manchester United as well as Leicester City.

It could have been a lot worse for Tuchel’s side as they found themselves a goal down at the break, despite dominating possession, with Takumi Minamino breaking the deadlock.

However, the former Bayer Leverkusen man missed four games on the bounce, with the win over Newcastle coming too soon for the Germany international.

He was passed fit to face the Saints.
