Thomas Tuchel gives injury update on Christensen, Kovaic ahead Arsenal clash

Christensen damaged a tendon in Saturday’s win against City, while Kovacic has been out since last month with a hamstring problem.

Thomas Tuchel confirmed that Andreas Christensen and Mateo Kovacic will both miss the game tonight through injury, but have not yet been ruled out of the Cup Final.

Christensen damaged a tendon in Saturday’s win against City, while Kovacic has been out since last month with a hamstring problem.

“It was better than we feared,” Tuchel said of Christensen. “The [scans] yesterday were much better. We hope he’ll be back for one of the two Leicester games. It will be a tough one, but the season isn’t finished for him, hopefully. We have realistic hopes the latest he can come back is Aston Villa.”

Kovacic has not played since April 10 and Tuchel added: “We have to postpone his personal race, it’s on to try to make it into the squad for Wembley.

“Kova is a big loss, with his ability to drive with balls, with his speed on the ball, without the ball, and he is such a positive character and such an unique player, a fighter, on whom you can always rely in training and games, has big experience, although he’s still young.

“I can’t wait until he is back in full team training. He did some steps in the right direction and I hope he can join team training after Arsenal.”
