The Blues return to the training field two days before their trip to Old Trafford on Thursday night, where Thomas Tuchel’s side will be looking to cement their place in the Premier League’s top four.
We are currently 11 points clear of sixth-placed Manchester United after playing two less games, and our lead in the Champions League qualification spots has grown to seven points following the weekend triumph over West Ham.
Rudiger was ruled out of the last-minute win as well as our loss to Arsenal due to groin and hamstring injuries, according to Tuchel. However, the defender’s reintegration plan is on track, with his return to training with the rest of the team scheduled for today. At his pre-match press conference, Tuchel will reveal more information.
