Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admits to having concerns about the fitness of forward Tammy Abraham.

Abraham left the pitch after just 19 minutes at home against Newcastle United, in a game his side eventually won 2-0, after being tackled by Jamaal Lascelles.

And Tuchel was not happy with the Newcastle United skipper Lascelles when he was asked about Abraham’s injury.

“There’s no update yet on Tammy, but we needed to take him off after a hard tackle,” said Tuchel. “So, we are worried, but there’s no news of him.

“My assistant tried to show him (Bankes) the tackle on the iPad and he told us he was not allowed to talk to us. It was the tackle, but we didn’t know he wasn’t allowed to watch. So okay, we didn’t realise that.

“We had the feeling it was a reckless tackle.

“He (Lascelles) played the ball, yes, but for me, it’s too much of a risk to an injury to the opponent. And because of that for me, it’s a foul.

“It’s reckless, but okay it was not like us to criticise, just to discuss with the officials.”
