Chelsea have been handed a double injury boost with N’Golo Kante and Trevoh Chalobah set to make the matchday squad against Everton.
Kante has not played for the Blues since his knee injury against Juventus last month. He is now fully fit and available for selection on Thursday.
Alongside the Frenchman, Chalobah is also available for the Toffees clash after overcoming a hamstring injury sustained at the start of December.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Tuchel confirmed that both players will make the matchday squad to face the Toffees.
Elsewhere, Mateo Kovacic has returned to training after recovering from COVID-19, but the game will come too soon for him.
The midfielder had been out for several weeks with a hamstring injury before testing positive for coronavirus. He needs more time.
Ben Chilwell is another confirmed absentee for the Blues. He is working his way back to match sharpness after a knee ligament injury.
The England international is touted to return to action by late January.
