Thomas Tuchel confirms Chelsea duo won't face Luton Town
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Hakim Ziyech and Reece James are unlikely to feature against Luton Town.
Ziyech picked up an Achilles injury against Lille in the Champions League and subsequently missed the League Cup final loss to Liverpool.
He has yet to recover from the setback, and Tuchel has revealed that the Moroccan won't play any part tomorrow alongside James.
James played 70 minutes on Sunday after his return from a hamstring injury. Due to the heavy workload, he is expected to be rested.
Aside from the duo, Ben Chilwell is out with a long-term knee injury while Andreas Christensen has yet to recover from an Achilles issue.
Meanwhile, Cesar Azpilicueta suffered a knock against the Reds last weekend, and he may require a late fitness test for the FA Cup tie.
The Blues had a tough FA Cup fourth round tie against Plymouth. The League One outfit took them all the way to extra-time (2-1 win).
With the wholesale changes due tomorrow, it could be another tough test against Luton, who are flying high with four wins in five league games.
