Champions League: Kante, Pulisic Ruled Out Of Zenit Clash

Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Ngolo Kante and Christian Pulisic will not be available for Chelsea’s clash with Zenith Petersburg in the Champions League.

The Blues welcome the Russian team to Stamford Bridge as they aim to defend the trophy they won last season.

Kante hobbled off of the 1-1 draw with Liverpool before the international break.

Pulisic came back injured from the international break.

“N’Golo had two training sessions yesterday and trained again today, but the Champions League game comes a bit too early for him” Tuchel told a news conference ahead of Tuesday’s match at Stamford Bridge.

“We won’t take the risk with him now at this moment of the season. We have decided to give him another load in training tomorrow… (he will) train with us all on Friday to be ready totally for Tottenham.”

Chelsea clash with Zenith St Petersburg is on Tuesday.
