Tuchel said: 'Jorgi is absolutely okay. We had to take Kai off due to hamstring problems, he felt a bit of tension. We have some doubts with him, we need to check to see if he can train without any problems.

'This is more or less the question mark. Timo feels good in training yesterday, he is back in the squad again. Mateo Kovacic is out. That’s it.'

Lukaku could return to the squad for tonight's fixture

18:47,

Tuchel says Lukaku could return to the squad for tonight's fixture. Speaking at his pre-match press conference he said: 'Not sure yet. We have one more training. Yesterday he (Romelu Lukaku) was in team training and seems okay.

'Let’s see about the reaction. He has right now an appointment with the doctors and physios to see about the reaction, see about the next training. Maybe.

How James is evolving under Tuchel

  How James is evolving under Tuchel Chelsea's Reece James is the most in-form player in the country right now and Thomas Tuchel has taken his game to another level.The 21-year-old, all speed and explosive energy on Chelsea's right flank, ripped into Massimiliano Allegri's side from the start. By the end, as well as scoring his fifth goal of the season, he had taken more shots than any other player and created the most chances too.

'We have the chance to bring 20 players to the squad. Maybe we have the chance that he is in the squad for the last minutes. That would be the absolute maximum of what we can get out of the situation right now.'

Tuchel on Chelsea's 'must win' match

18:40,

When asked about Chelsea's need to win against Juve in order to win Group H, Tuchel said: 'First and foremost, we do what we do. When we play football games, we try to win them. This is what we do and this will not change.

'Ok later in the game, if the scoresheet is a draw, we will maybe not allow Edou Mendy to go into the opponents' box when we have a late corner because we will not risk our qualification and go all-in.

'But until this moment we will try everything to win the game and to have a chance to do that, we have to win the game.'

A big night for Thomas Tuchel…
