"It will be very tight for Sunday, only two days recovery," Tuchel said. "It is too early to give a diagnosis because I saw him very briefly with a big strap around his muscle.

"We will have to wait until Friday so we can confirm it but I think for Sunday he is a big doubt."

Jorginho's 24th-minute penalty sealed the victory for Chelsea and lifted them into sixth spot with 36 points from 22 games.
