Chelsea manager Tuchel confirms why Havertz missed FA Cup final loss

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel confirmed Kai Havertz missed the FA Cup final loss to Liverpool after failing to recover in time from a hamstring injury.

The Blues went down 6-5 on penalties after the match finished goalless.

Tuchel also confirmed that Timo Werner picked up an injury in the warm-up.

"Kai, we did a last test he did not train yesterday because of hamstring problems," Tuchel told reporters at a post-match press conference.

"We tried everything and had a test this morning and it was not better. Timo was uncomfortable in the warm-up and said he could not play."
