Tuchel confirm Kante and Ziyech will start in FA Cup.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that N’golo Kante and Hakim Ziyech will start against Barnsley in the FA Cup.

The Blues manager further stated that some of the players have not gotten the chance to play but tomorrow will be an opportunity to have fresh legs on the pitch.

“There’s a high possibility that we will see a lot of changes,” Tuchel confirmed at his pre-match press conference.

“This is the third away game in a row for us, so we don’t want to lose awareness or attention to detail and I think this is a good chance for some changes.

“Everybody deserves to be on the pitch and there are some players who have suffered from some of my decisions. It’s a moment tomorrow for us to have fresh legs and fresh minds on the pitch.

“N’Golo will start tomorrow and I am so happy to have him back again. We put him on the pitch against Tottenham and he helped everybody on the pitch, which is what he does.

“Hakim is another one who hopefully tomorrow we will see the best of him. We count on Hakim to do something different, no doubt about that. He has lots of quality and we count on him like everyone else, no doubt about that.

“He has had a good training week and tomorrow he will have the chance to show the same quality and determination he shows in training.”
