Thomas Tuchel confirms double injury boost for Chelsea

Chelsea receive double injury boost for Arsenal clash

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that N'Golo Kante and Hakim Ziyech are available for selection against Arsenal.

Ziyech dislocated his shoulder during the UEFA Super Cup win over Villarreal this month. Kante suffered a muscle injury in the same game.

Both players were absent for the 3-0 win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League opener, but they are fit to face the Gunners.

It is unclear whether they will start. Tuchel has indicated that they will have more physical sessions tomorrow to assess their fitness.

The Blues are now up to full strength with no injuries, but Christian Pulisic won't face the Gunners after contracting COVID-19.

The European champions failed to beat the Gunners in the Premier League last term. They will be keen to make amends on Sunday.

The club will be favourites for the London derby with the Gunners in a crisis. Up to eight first team players are likely to miss the game.
