Thomas Tuchel has been working hard in signing defenders this summer to overcome the defense crisis. Kalidou Koulibaly being his first signing,he has been great since the beginning of the season till when he was redcaded in the clash against Leeds united last weekend. This has made him miss Chelsea's match against Leicester City.
Thomas Tuchel will have to overcome the absence of two key players when Chelsea welcome Leicester City to Stamford Bridge this afternoon with the Blues looking for their first home win of the season.
However, last weekend Chelsea lost 3-0 at Leeds United and Tuchel will no doubt be desperate for a home win to truly kick start his side's season.
Tuchel is desperate to add at least one other centre-back to his squad with it incredibly possible that the Chelsea boss opts to repeat this against Leicester. However, he does have both Cesar Azpilicueta and Trevor Chalobah fit.
