Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel faces key decision regarding four players ahead of Brentford clash
The Blues are currently top of the league and have a one-point lead over Liverpool. Tuchel’s side recently had a dip in form that has seen them lost two of their last three games in all competitions.
The late win against Southampton last time around showcased the side is capable of picking themselves up. He will need them to keep the run going against Brentford this week.
Thomas Frank’s side have taken the bull by the horns following their promotion to the top flight. They will provide a stern challenge and will not sit back against Chelsea.
Lukaku left the Belgium squad and returned to Cobham training ground yesterday. He is suffering from muscle fatigue and it remains unclear just how long he will be out for.
While Lukaku’s absence is to do with a lack of fitness, Niguez’s is more of a loss of form. Much was expected of the Spaniard following his loan move to the Bridge. He has so far fallen short of expectations. Whether he will get another chance against Brentford remains to be seen.
Rudiger missed Germany’s final training session with a back issue and it remains to be seen how serious it is. One of the club’s standout performers, he could miss the clash at the weekend.
