Chelsea boss Tuchel confirms flight plan for Middlesbrough

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed they’ll be flying to Teesside for their FA Cup tie at Middlesbrough on Sunday.

Government imposed spending restrictions threatened the club’s travel plans.

But Tuchel said: “Everybody worked hard to make it happen and it has gone through.

“We can travel by plane which is very good as we only had the Lille match two days ago so we want to maximise the chance of recovery.

“Everything is organised as usual.

“Reece (James) Callum (Hudson Odoi) and Andreas Christensen are uncertain.

“They are in training but weren’t in full training. It will be a tight race but maybe too close.”

Tuchel was asked if he was surprised that Reece James was included in the England squad.

“Yes and no. I would also call Reece up no matter what if I was the head coach of the England team. That’s why I am not surprised.

“Yesterday, he was not match-ready. Let’s see what happens tomorrow. He comes after nine weeks of injury and we will test if he can do the full match tomorrow.

“If not, it makes no sense that he should go.”
