Chelsea News: Pulisic Misses Out But Trio Could All Feature At Arsenal

Thomas Tuchel used his today's media conference to provide the latest team news ahead of Sunday's London derby at Arsenal.

According to him, Christian Pulisic will miss the game after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier in the week. However, the boss hinted that Romelu Lukaku could be in line for his second Chelsea debut after strong week of training, while Hakim Ziyech and N'golo Kante have both been training in recent days and could return after missing the premier league opener against Crystal Palace.

'With Christian, it's unfortunately very easy to explain, he had a positive test and needed to follow the protocols so won't be available for the game', said Tuchel.

Hakim and N'golo were both in training today and they had no problems. We need more intense session tomorrow with them and team before we decide but now it seems positive that both can be in the squad on Sunday.

'For Ziyech in particular, it was a cruel injury blow suffered in the super cup, curtailing a promising pre-season and a goalscoring contribution in Belfast. While Tuchel is pleased to see the Moroccan back in training, he offered a word of caution about rushing the forward back too quickly'.

'Today (Friday) was lower intensity and tomorrow we have important training for the match but we are hoping he will be on the pitch for Sunday'.
