Jorginho available to face Brentford

Chelsea have been handed a fitness boost ahead of the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Brentford tomorrow.

The Blues are scheduled to face the Bees away from home. Ahead of the game, they have received a boost with Jorginho’s return.

The Italian was absent for the weekend’s league meeting at Wolves after confusion over his coronavirus test earlier on Sunday.

He has now been cleared to return after registering a negative test. The 30-year-old has been involved in full training recently.

Meanwhile, Andreas Christensen (back) and Trevoh Chalobah (knock) were also part of the training session conducted on Monday.

However, Tuchel has said that the duo are very doubtful. There could be little rotation in the central defensive department tomorrow.

Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger started in the back three on Sunday. Tuchel may opt for a four-man defence.

Malang Sarr and club graduate Xavier Mbuyamba are players that Tuchel can call upon if he decides to rest the regular starters.
