Chelsea boss Tuchel: Liverpool struggling without fans

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes Liverpool are missing their fans at Anfield.

The German takes his side to Anfield tomorrow night as they look to continue their form under his guidance.

And speaking ahead of the game, Tuchel said: "I am pretty relaxed. I am pretty sure Liverpool miss their fans, I know from experience the impact the Anfield crowd has on their team.

"Yes, they have dropped points, many times not deserved and they have had some unlucky results. They are one of the best teams in Europe but we are confident we can go there and do what we have to do to win."

Tuchel also offered an injury update: "Callum (Hudson-Odoi) has no issue at all, full training. Thiago made his first training with the team but did not finish the last exercise, just to be taking no risk. I assume he trains today but not 100 per cent so he will not join us for Liverpool."
