Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is unsure of Jorginho and N'Golo Kante's fitness ahead of the team's Premier League clash with Leeds United on Wednesday. Jorginho went off with an injury during the clash with Everton at the start of the month.

Meanwhile, Kante picked up a knock during Chelsea's Old Trafford visit a few days earlier. Tuchel is still doubtful about the duo's participation in the Leeds clash. In a pre-match press conference, he said (via Football.London ):

"We're fighting for Jorgi and N'Golo tomorrow, but I don't know if they'll make it."

In their absence against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend, Tuchel deployed Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mateo Kovacic in central midfield. The pair could link up again on Wednesday if neither Jorginho nor Kante are deemed fit to play.

The Italian returned to training at Cobham on Monday, a day after the Blues' draw with Wolves. However, his French counterpart was conspicuous by his absence once again.

With an all-important FA Cup final against Liverpool coming up on Saturday, Tuchel is unlikely to risk either player if they aren't fully fit.
