Chelsea v Juventus: Tuchel comments on Lukaku’s fitness

Thomas Tuchel is still unsure whether or not Romelu Lukaku will start against Juventus tomorrow.

The Bianconeri visit Chelsea in a key Champions League clash to determine the Group H winner.

The former Inter striker is in doubt for the match due to an ankle injury.

“Not sure yet [Lukaku]. He semed ok in training yesterday, we will see about the reaction,” Tuchel said at a pre-match press conference, as quoted by Football London.

“He has an appointment with the doctors and physios. Maybe we can bring 20 players to the squad. The last minutes would be the absolute maximum.

“Jorginho is absolutely OK. Kai had a hamstring problem so we took him off and we have some doubts about him. This is more or less the question mark.

“We will not risk our qualification and go all-in if the situation is like this but we will try everything to win the game and the group and to do this, we have to win the game.”
