Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel explains why Kepa is named in line up ahead of Edouard Mendy

Tuchel has been inconsistent with his striker choices so far which suggests he’s still testing his strikers and yet to choose his preferred forward.

Like Kepa, the Newcastle fixture is a good chance for Abraham to prove what he can do.

“We need strikers, we need goals,” replied Tuchel when asked about the line up.

“Tammy delivered (in the FA Cup). Today we think it’s not such a high chance to drop from the No.6 because they have a single 6. The 10 is not so open normally so we opted for Tammy, he’s in good shape and the guy to break the last line.”
