Thomas Tuchel used a lot of youth players in the third round of the FA Cup, which was a good decision by the Chelsea coach to avoid losing key players to injury. With Spurs up next, Tuchel will have to make some key decisions about who he can and cannot start to ensure his team reaches the final.
With that said, let's take a look at the three players who could return before Wednesday's game against Tottenham.
Due to a Covid-19 infection, the midfielder was unable to play in the first leg against Tottenham. However, he is not believed to have been severely harmed by the illness and may be able to play against Spurs.
The Brazilian was infected with Covid, but according to his wife's recent Twitter post, he has since tested negative. He, like Kante, may be able to return to the game on Wednesday.
The promising academy product suffered a minor injury against Liverpool last week, forcing him to miss games against Tottenham and Chesterfield. Hopefully, he has regained his fitness and will be available for the game on Wednesday.
