Kante & Pulisic update after Chelsea’s encounter with Liverpool

N Golo Kante

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel provided updates on the well-being of N’Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic tonight.

Havertz on target

Tuchel and company, of course, were back in action a short time ago.

The Blues made the trip to Anfield, with the aim of keeping alive their impeccable opening to the new Premier League campaign.

However, when all was said and done, after a hard-fought 90 minutes, Chelsea were forced to make do with a share of the spoils.

The capital giants really took the lead in the clash, when Kai Havertz’s wonderful looping header found its way past Alisson and into the back post:

However, the momentum of the proceedings was soon tipped in Liverpool’s favor, as Reece James was sent to an early bathroom, before Mohamed Salah stepped in to nullify the resulting penalty in style.

But Chelsea, to their credit, regained their composure at the break, before a defensive masterclass during 45 seconds ensured Tuchel’s men emerged with a fully deserved point.

Kante last

As such, although their perfect start to the season eventually came to an end, the Blues certainly left Anfield satisfied with another impressive day at work.

However, a disturbing blow on a positive night for Chelsea came on the staff front.

After suffering an ankle problem late in the first half, N’Golo Kante was finally forced to give way at half-time, before being replaced by Mateo Kovacic.

In turn, speaking during his post-match press duties in Merseyside, it came as no surprise when Thomas Tuchel was asked for an update on the well-being of his star midfielder.

And the German went on to confirm that Kante has aggravated an existing ankle injury, ahead of a possible sideline spell:

On Christian Pulisic, who has missed Chelsea’s last two outings after testing positive for Covid-19, Tuchel added:
