         “Sing the Blues” just opened home to a 2-0 win over Spurs in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg, preparing to play in the cup game in the FA. Cup with an open house to receive the visit of the underdog team. Chesterfield, where the German coach spoke out about his availability ahead of the game without Reece James, Ben Chilwell and Trevoh Chalobah, who are out for a long time.

         “The player with a long injury will not return but Azpi has just had a cramp. No injuries,” Tuchel said. “Kai’s finger is much better. Our doctors will take care of it.”

         “Andreas Christensen returned to Zim yesterday and hopefully it’s okay. We still have training again, hopefully the situation will continue like this. Because that will give us more options.”

         “Tiago and N’Golo are fine in terms of symptoms. But they still haven’t recovered. No one is ready yet.”
