Chelsea press conference LIVE: Thomas Tuchel on Abramovich,Lille, team news



The Chelsea head coach – and a yet to be confirmed player – is speaking to the media this morning ahead of the Blues’ Champions League Round of 16 second leg against Lille

Good morning and welcome to live coverage of Thomas Tuchel’s pre-match press conference ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League Round of 16 second leg against Lille.

The Blues make the short trip to France tomorrow evening with a two-goal advantage from the first leg at Stamford Bridge. It’s why Tuchel’s side is expected to progress.

Chelsea are likely to travel to Lille without first-choice wing-backs Reece James and Ben Chilwell. The fitness of Cesar Azpilicueta, Marcos Alonso and Callum Hudson-Odoi is also in doubt.

Tuchel will deliver the latest team news when he faces the media this morning, in addition to giving his thoughts on Chelsea’s takeover, the continued impact of the UK government sanctioning Roman Abramovich, and much more.

We will bring you the latest from Tuchel’s press conference – and a yet-to-be-named Chelsea player – via our Blues correspondent Adam Newson.
