Chelsea Boss "I Trust N'Golo Kante And Kovacic To Do The Job During Liverpool Clash"

First, before we look at Thomas Tuchel's trust in Kante, let's take a step to update fans on serious transfer news. Chelsea 'weigh up £23m moves for St Etienne's 17-year-old midfielder Lucas Gourna-Douath' after a breakthrough season in Ligue 1 - with the French side needing to cash in this summer.

Tuchel "I trust N’Golo and Kovacic to take care of Sadio Mane, to stay close to him. He’s a key player and the accelerator of the game. He delivers passes behind the back, he just needs one half foot open and he can be a threat with all the guys up front and their speed. The challenge is to defend him in the areas he will hang around.

Tammy Abraham's ankle is '100%' which is why he might be present from the Chelsea side during the Liverpool clash.

Tuchel on Hakim: He is a different kind of player. He deserves to start because he had a good impact in the game against Atletico.

Thomas Tuchel dropping a selection hint for Liverpool here “we had the feeling to give Timo a little break, to have him from the bench and also fresh for the fixture against Liverpool. I felt him a little bit tired after many games in a row."
