Chelsea set Reece James and Christian Pulisic are ‘uncertain’ in regards to being prepared to handle Brentford on Saturday, according to reports.
The duo suffered injuries that saw them stay at Cobham throughout the worldwide break however might not be all set for the Premier League clash.
As per the Independent, James and Pulisic might miss out on the match due to their injuries.
James was initially phoned to the England team however was changed by Ben Chilwell due to an injury.
Thomas Tuchel formerly revealed his surprise relating to James’ call-up, as he was hurt.
He stated: ” When I saw it (the call up) I believed that perhaps Reece chooses the water polo group with England due to the fact that today he trains in the swimming pool.
” I was rather stunned he was chosen for the England football group. This will not take place as he is training in the swimming pool today.
” My understanding from the last details is that he can not go. It needs to be a misconception, absolutely nothing else.”
It appears that the injury, that required James off versus Manchester City, is even worse than initially feared and he will miss out on another match for the Blues.
Meanwhile, Pulisic got an injury throughout the last worldwide break and has actually still not gone back to training.
It has actually just recently been reported that the USMNT captain would ‘possibly’ be returning today, however still stays a doubt for the weekend’s clash.
