The focus to start with – as always – is on the injury news, and there are a couple of significant players who the assembled journalists were interested in.
Mateo Kovacic, Reece James and Antonio Rudiger all missed the narrow win over West Ham at the weekend – but it sounds like two of them have the chance to return tomorrow.
James and Rudiger trained today, the manager confirmed in quotes picked up by Football.London, and he will decide tomorrow whether they will face United.
Kovacic on the other hand did not train, and it doesn’t sound like he’s expected back anytime soon.
That’s a huge blow considering the form the Croatian has been in, and a huge blow to the team’s creativity as we saw at the weekend where we looked really flat.
