The details of injuries that Mateo Kovacic and Hakim Ziyech suffered for Chelsea against  LOSC Lille in the Champions League round of 16 have been revealed.



The pair were substituted against the French giant on Tuesday and this threw their involvement on Sunday in the Carabao Cup final into lots of doubt. According to Nathan Gissing, 'the injuries are nothing serious'.

He wrote: "Understand Kovacic and Ziyech's injuries are ‘nothing serious’. They are both fine. Both picked up ‘impact’ injuries. Kovacic got a kick in the back and Ziyech a kick to his Achilles."

Speaking on the injuries after the match, Tuchel said: "I don't know. I should have substituted Kovacic at half-time so we could have saved one more change. I did not speak to the doctor yet with Hakim, I hope it is not too much.


"We will take care to be ready on Sunday. 


"We don't like that many injuries and would like impact from the bench in a tactical manner, we hope the guys will be ready for Sunday's clash".

Chelsea is already battling to have Mason Mount back for the Carabao Cup. As Reece James returns to the squad after he is set to return to team training on Thursday. James has been out since tearing his hamstring against Brighton & Hove Albion in the final game of 2021. Fortunately, he did not require surgery, but it’s been a long road back indeed — though still within the bounds of the original 6-8 week prognosis.

If the 22-year-old is fit, we could certainly use him against Liverpool in Sunday’s League Cup final, which could allow him to take a bit of personal revenge as well. James missed our last game against the Reds, a 2-2 draw at the Bridge, while he was sent off for a controversial handball in the reverse fixture back at the start of the season (with 10-man Chelsea holding out for a 1-1 draw).

The Blues face Liverpool on Sunday and are hoping to have both Kovacic and Ziyech available after their recent run of form that has seen Chelsea lift the Club World Cup trophy earlier this month.
