Chelsea press conference live: Thomas Tuchel on Brentford, Lukaku, Rudiger, Pulisic and more


Hello and welcome for the live coverage of Thomas Tuchel’s press conference ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League trip to Brentford.

The Blues are back in action after the international break with a tricky derby in West London. The newly promoted Bees have made an impressive start to the 2021/22 campaign, having suffered just one loss in their first seven top-level appearances.

Chelsea are making the short trip to the top Brentford Community Stadium, which is no small feat considering they have faced Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City before.

The next round of matches will likely define whether Tuchel’s side are true title contenders; win victory after victory by the next international break and the Blues will be in a strong position as the winter months approach.

The Chelsea head coach has some fitness issues ahead of tomorrow’s game. Romelu Lukaku withdrew from the Belgian squad last weekend due to muscle fatigue, although he resumed training yesterday, while Antonio Rudiger is treating a back problem.

Christian Pulisic, meanwhile, has been out for more than a month with an ankle injury and is unlikely to be fit for the game. We will however have a full update on Tuchel’s team news in addition to having his thoughts ahead of tomorrow’s competition.
