Chelsea boss Tuchel raps Premier League scheduling of Leicester clash

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has slammed the Premier League over their scheduling for Tuesday's clash with Leicester City.

The league contest comes just over 72 hours after the two sides met in the FA Cup final, which Leicester won 1-0.

"We never understood this and we said before that we could not understand because both teams are involved and it would have been easier for both teams to have had a Wednesday game because the next game is Sunday," Tuchel said before the pre-match at Stamford Bridge.

"There is absolutely no reason to play Saturday, Tuesday, Sunday. It is absolutely logical to play the game on Wednesday.

"From a sporting side, nobody can disagree. But, okay, we were surprised we could not change and we cannot wish for another date to play, so we will be ready tomorrow."
