Chelsea will be away to Leeds United at the Elland Road on Sunday.

Thomas Tuchel has ruled three Chelsea players out of that game.

N’Golo Kante who pulled his hamstring against Tottenham will be out for weeks, while Mateo Kovacic is still out with a knee injury.

Tuchel also confirmed that that striker Armando Broja will be out for some days, and Christian Pulisic is a doubt.

“It’s quite serious,” said Tuchel of Kante’s injury.

“We’re talking about weeks. It’s not good news. We are disappointed and sad because N’Golo was super important and super fit, and he will be out for several weeks.”

Tuchel then went on: “Armando is out for some days. He cannot come with us to Leeds. Mateo Kovacic is still out with knee problems.

“Christian Pulisic had Achilles problems but trained today. Let’s see.”
