Blues touch down in Turin

A squad of 21 Chelsea players have landed safely in Turin ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League clash with Juventus.

Thomas Tuchel and his players travelled from the UK early afternoon, safely touching down in northern Italy a little after 7pm local time.

N’Golo Kante has not travelled, with the French midfielder absent after testing postive for Covid-19, while Mason Mount is another absentee having been unable to shake off the injury that kept him out of Saturday’s defeat to Manchester City.

Reece James and Christian Pulisic also remain sidelined, but Malang Sarr, Saul and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are among those included.
