Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic will try to force himself into enough fitness to play in the FA Cup final.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed Kovacic will attempt to play through the pain in Saturday’s Wembley clash with Liverpool.

Tuchel admitted straight after the Elland Road clash that Kovacic would need almost a “miracle” to be fit in time for the FA Cup final.

“He knows what it takes to also sometimes put the ego aside and serve the team, he’s a fantastic guy and player.

And he’s been excellent in the games against Liverpool this season.

“The ligament is anyway stretched from the last incident, so there’s no new injury but heavy pain, and it’s heavily swollen.” The Chelsea boss added: “We’re hoping that maybe time is enough that he makes it.

“We will try it today actually, which is pretty surprising news where we are in the situation where we can try it,” said Tuchel.
