“It’s Nothing Big” – Thomas Tuchel explains Why he left Tammy Abraham out of his squard as Chelsea suffer shock defeat against relegation-threatened West Brom



Thomas Tuchel has revealed Tammy Abraham was NOT injured as the striker was left out of the matchday squad for Chelsea’s shock 5-2 defeat against West Brom.

West Brom made Chelsea pay for Silva’s premature dismissal with goals from Matheus Pereira (2), Callum Robinson (2) and Mbaye.

Abraham was a notable absentee from Chelsea’s 18-man squad after recovering from an ankle injury.

Explaining Abraham’s absence, Tuchel told talkSPORT: “He was not in the squad. I have to nominate 18 players.

“There are tough choices to make. We take the choices of what the game demands, of what we predict, of the substitutions that we have.

“In the end, we have to select 18 players for more or less 20 positions. So we have to leave three players out and Tammy was one of the three players.

“It’s nothing personal or nothing big. He has the same chance to play every three days like everybody else.”

Abraham has started just three Premier League games since Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard in the Chelsea hot seat in January.
