Jorginho will not travel with the team to Russia. According to Tuchel he has been playing with back pain in the last two matches something he says is due to fatigue and therefore needs to rest.

Chalobah had an hamstring over the weekend and will be out of this clash. However tests are positive and he might back to training next week.

Chillwell is still out for an unknown period of time. He had an ACL injury that might take long to recover.

Tuchel will be missing half of his starting XI players due to injury. It is a big headache but Tuchel has a lot of options to choose from.

Chelsea are looking to bounce back tomorrow with a win after the weekend loss against Westham. A win will put them at the top of the group.
