Chelsea boss Tuchel has mixed news for Ziyech and Christensen

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has mixed news for Hakim Ziyech and Andreas Christensen ahead of their clash with Aston Villa.

Ziyech is expected to make the clash.

"With Hakim, I'm not sure right now about his status," said the German head coach.

"He got a kick that was very painful and I don't know whether he will be fit for Aston Villa yet. We will need to see because there has not been a lot of time between games.

"Andreas had an injection in the lower back area recently and is also in a lot of pain. It's not good when we have issues like this over the past few days all at the same time when we want to be competitive but we will try and stay positive and look to arrive at Aston Villa with a full respect for the competition."
