Four Chelsea Players That Could Miss the Match Against Juventus In the UEFA Champions League.

N’golo Kante has been ruled out of the clash against Juventus on Wednesday due to Corona Virus. Chelsea Head Coach Thomas Tuchel confirmed that the French Midfielder won't be available, and he’s currently practicing self-isolation.

Chelsea won their first match in the opening game in the UEFA Champions League against Zenith and many of their fans are hoping to secure a win against the Italian Club, having lost three points in their previous match against Manchester City in the league.

Another player that has been ruled out of the match is Cristian Pulisic, The American captain has not recovered from his injury since the international break. It was confirmed that he’s currently practicing individual training, and he is yet to recover fully and he would be back in the team as soon as he is fit.

Reece James picked up an injury during the clash against Manchester City and was subbed for Thiago Silva. It has been revealed that it is likely for James is to miss the next two or three Chelsea Matches, which means he won't be available in the Champions League match. And Tuchel says that he is unlikely to be back until after the International break at the earliest.

Mason Mount injury remains a considerable doubt, and it hasn't been confirmed if he would feature or not, Though he missed the clash against Manchester City in the league, which contributed to Chelsea's loss according to Tuchel. Mount picked up a minor injury in the Carabao Cup match against Aston Villa. He has been integral in the Chelsea squad in the past season and he would be a boost for Chelsea if he plays against Juventus in the Champions League.

It would certainly be a herculean task for Tuchel to beat Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri without these players. Though, Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala have been ruled out of the match also, So we believe this a good news for the blue side ahead of the game.
