Chelsea are aiming to win their first game without Thomas Tuchel on the touchline. Prior preparations have already been done. Minor injuries have been dealt with. The assistant manager reported that the whole squad is currently healthy and anyone is ready to contest for starting spot. The injuries that were nursed during the FA Cup clash seem to be positively handled. Reece James is still not ready to play and will miss the whole tournament. Edouard Mendy has finally teamed up with the rest after celebrating in Senegal.
According Peter Cech, the injury for Mason Mount has been assessed. He is now ready to play. He accelerated his recovery because he understands how this prestigious trophy is. He is now another option for the assistant manager to make decision on. The England midfielder has missed few games because of injury this season. He has also been instrumental in the squad because his work rate is unmatched. Today is another day for him to show his class.
