Here is yet another bad news for Chelsea FC as they prepare to host Atletico Madrid in the second leg of their champions league round of 16.
The blues would be without two key players as confirmed by head coach, Thomas Tuchel in his pre-match press conference.
It could be recalled that in their first leg of the tie, Chelsea made away with a goal scored by Oliver Giroud. However, in this second leg, Tammy Abraham and Thiago Silva have been confirmed "unfit" for the game.
This is not so good as the duo would have contributed greatly to the progression of the blues to the quarter finals.
Also in the bad news is the suspension of another duo; Jorgino and Mason Mount from the mid-week clash.
It is really a time where Chelsea need to put in all effort in order to get the upper hand in the goal in order to qualify for the next level.
We really hope that they will pull through even with the shortage of players.
