Tuchel's players were given Tuesday off before beginning intensive preparations for Saturday's clash with Manchester City in Porto.

Mendy underwent scans on Monday after a rib injury forced him off at half-time in Chelsea's defeat to Aston Villa in the final game of the Premier League, reports the London Evening Standard.

The results suggested the goalkeeper had suffered an impact injury, rather than anything more serious, but the club's medical staff will assess him further today to see if he is still feeling pain.

Tuchel wants Mendy to take part in full training – but is also prepared to wait as long as possible before making a final decision on when the Senegal international will be able to start against City.

France international Kante was also due to resume full training, with Tuchel admitting he would avoid asking for further updates from his medical team to avoid bad news.

“I'm thinking about changing my tactics now to stop asking about N'Golo and just put him on the pitch in Wednesday's training," the Chelsea manager said this week. “And don't ask him any more if there are any problems, just put him in training, and put him on the pitch when the game starts on Saturday.

“Maybe I will not speak to the doctors and the physios anymore so I hear no more doubts, no complaints or nothing. But it looks good and I hope it stays like that."
