They are two of six changes the boss has made to his side from Sunday’s thriller with Liverpool, and he explained why a couple are enforced when asked if there were fresh cases in the camp.
‘Yes, unfortunately Thiago Silva and N’Golo Kante,’ said Tuchel.
‘It’s huge for us because they are two huge players. We had the last information today in the morning, so it is quite challenging, but we will push. The guys who are here have our trust and our belief.
‘We will push things to the maximum. The situation hasn’t changed since some weeks ago, it’s not the moment to repeat it, from here we are looking for solutions. I have trust in the guys who play and hopefully we put in a strong performance.’
