Thomas Tuchel issues update on Pulisic and Havertz ahead of Atletico clash

Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz are in Chelsea’s squad for their Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid on Tuesday evening.

Havertz has not featured for Chelsea since their 2-0 win against Burnley on January 31.

Pulisic, meanwhile, has been struggling with a calf problem and was also absent for Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Southampton on Saturday,

But Tuchel has confirmed both players took part in Monday’s training session ahead of their fixture against Atletico in Bucharest.

‘I’m very happy both of them are in the group, they trained with us, they have no complaints.

‘I’m happy they travel with us and are in the squad for tomorrow.’

Chelsea, however, will be without Thiago Silva for their trip to Bucharest as the Brazil international continues to recover from the thigh injury he picked up in the win over Tottenham on February 4.

‘He is not available,’ said Tuchel.

‘He is training right now. We are leaving and he is not available.’
