EPL: I might be forced to do crazy stuff against Wolves – Tuchel

Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has said he might be forced to do “crazy stuff” when his side travels to Wolves on Sunday.

Tuchel, on Friday, revealed he was facing a midfield crisis with Jorginho and Ruben Loftus-Cheek both injured.

The Blues have been without Mateo Kovacic after he tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

That leaves N’Golo Kante and Saul Niguez as the Blues’ only deep-lying options in midfield, alongside the recovering Kovacic and Ross Barkley.

Tuchel told a press conference: “Jorginho is a doubt for Sunday as he is in pain.

“Ruben Loftus-Cheek is a doubt because he is in pain. Mateo Kovacic is back in his first training session today.

“We need to find a balance now as we have put everything on Jorginho’s shoulders. Ruben got injured yesterday, maybe we are forced to do the crazy stuff that we might not do.”
