Thomas Tuchel issues worrying update on Edouard Mendy’s injury ahead of Manchester City clash

Thomas Tuchel issues worrying update on Edouard Mendy's injury ahead of Manchester City clash

Mendy in recovery?

Edouard Mendy suffered a hip injury in Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Zenit St Petersburg as they got their Champions League defense off to a perfect start at Stamford Bridge.

Although the goalkeeper, who has proven to be a revelation since joining the Rennes club in the summer of 2020, saw the game, he was conspicuously absent from the Blues’ game with Tottenham. Instead, record signing Kepa Arrizabalaga was present between the sticks as they advanced to a 3-0 win over their London rivals.

However, with a much more difficult encounter ahead when Manchester City travel to Stamford Bridge this Saturday, as well as the reputation that Kepa has earned during his time in London as an unreliable shot stopper, Chelsea fans will put up with it. Breathing as to whether Mendy will be fit enough to return to the game against the Premier League champions.

Thomas Tuchel issues a troubling update on his number 1

Before the Carabao Cup match against Aston Villa, Thomas Tuchel was questioned about the status of his number 1 and offered a mixed report. The German coach ruled out Mendy from the Cup tie on Wednesday, revealing that:

“Mendy cannot play and is not training until now. We will do what we can on Saturday (to face Man City).

He later went into more detail about his shot plug recovery timeline, outlining that:

“We hope to have him in individual training on Wednesday and then in group training on Thursday.”

At first glance, therefore, it appears that Chelsea might see Mendy in action again on Saturday lunchtime, however, when asked to confirm whether that might be the case, Tuchel seemed to suggest that he was not sure the situation, saying:

“Actually I think it is possible but it is a race against time and against pain”

It’s certainly not an outright endorsement of Mendy’s fitness that Chelsea fans yearned for.
