Chelsea prepare to host Atletico Madrid in the return leg of Champions League last 16 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening. 

Chelsea registered a 1-0 victory in the first leg of the tie and a goalless draw will see them advance to the quarter-finals of this season’s Champions League. The Blues will miss the services of Mason Mount and Jorginho who are suspended due to yellow card accumulation. 

Speaking ahead of the clash, Thomas Tuchel has admitted the absence of the pair against Madrid is a worry but has backed the rest of his squad to step up and fill their boots in the goal-scoring stakes. 

“Yeah, a little bit, of course,” said Tuchel when asked if missing the midfielders was a worry.

“Two key players for us. Especially Mason for his offensive skills, his power offensive-wise to break the lines with dribbling and shots.”

“They were important players so far and we have a group which we compete with in this competition and so now is the challenge to adapt and find solutions because it’s obvious we need to play without those two guys.”

“We also need to play without Thiago Silva and without Tammy Abraham. No more injuries, so we miss four players. That makes the selection easy. We have a clear idea of what we want to do and how we want to create chances. But we are very aware that Atletico is one of the teams that gives away the fewest chances in all of Europe.”

“It’s very likely that we have to be patient and play with intensity at the same time. Keeping this level constantly going is the key for tomorrow.”

Mount and Jorginho have netted six of just 13 goals in the 12 games Tuchel has been in charge.
