🎙 Thomas Tuchel press conference: 🚨 Lukaku and Kovacic are OUT against Leicester! Timo Werner will be a late call, and Pulisic is fine. 🔵 On Werner and Pulisic: "We have to wait and see after the training." 🔵 On Mount: "Mason is back, hungry and fresh. He looks good, but we have to see if he can start." 🔵 Lukaku against Juventus or Manchester United: "If everything works out perfectly, maybe he can join the group on the bench (vs. Juventus or Manchester United next week)." 🔵 On Jorginho: "He knows everybody will support him. He's fully respected and appreciated. We are super happy that he's back. These things happen. He's not the first and won't be the last to miss a penalty." 🔵 On Conor Gallagher: "I'm not surprised that the national team coach loves him because I love him. There's not a coach that wouldn't love him. I would have loved to play with him. I have not thought about bringing him back earlier. It's important for him to be happy where he is. It's important to be calm in this stage of his career. I feel him happy there. It's good that he has that impact." 🔵 On Leicester City: "They had a key player with Fofana got injured. This can create a bit of trouble in starting a season. They are a team full of individual quality, talent. It's a top team, club coach. I expect a tough one. I expect Chelsea to play with hunger, passion and the pure will to win. We want to install this mindset to restart winning and to restart our engine after the national break. Everybody tells me it's a tough place." 🔵 On Rudiger's future/contract: "It's pretty clear what we want. It isn't always the way that the club and coach want something and it will happen. Things can be delayed, take their time but I am sure Toni feels respected and what an important role he plays at this club." 🔵 On title race: "Yes [enjoy it], because if you are in the middle of it it means you are in the right place. Nobody expected the race to be decided in November. It's good news if we are in the middle, but it's November and there is such a long way to go. We have to show consistency like Man City and Liverpool. It's on us to prove we can do the same thing." 🔵 On Christensen's contract and future: "From Andreas, in my view, everyone wants the same thing. The coach, the club and the player. In the next days, I expect some good news."
