  • Forward has struggled to make bench under Tuchel
  • ‘I can’t make decisions based on personal goals of players’

Thomas Tuchel has defended his refusal to give Tammy Abraham more opportunities, arguing that he cannot base selections on the striker’s previous goalscoring exploits for Chelsea.

Although Abraham is Chelsea’s top scorer with 12 goals in 30 appearances this season, he has endured a difficult time since Tuchel’s appointment in January. The 23-year-old, whose England place is on the line before the European Championship, has often struggled to make the bench since recovering from an ankle injury and could consider his future this summer.

Top-four tussle: hopes and fears in race for Champions League spots

With Manchester City and United on course for top-four finishes, we examine the six clubs battling for two places

Optimist’s view: Brendan Rodgers’s team have evolved since last season, when they lost key players in the run-in and failed to hold their nerve, slipping out of the top four on the final day. This season their squad is stronger – thanks to purchases such as Wesley Fofana and Timothy Castagne and progress made by the likes of Youri Tielemans, unsurprisingly, and Kelechi Iheanacho – and their resolve is greater, too, enabling them to stay towards the top despite continuous injuries. They underperformed against Manchester City last week but have generally done particularly well against the top teams this season, which is why they are unlikely to be spooked by a run-in that looks difficult on paper, starting with Sunday’s trip to West Ham and finishing with matches against Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham.

Crystal Palace v Chelsea: match preview

Chelsea have to get things right domestically before facing Porto on Tuesday after their shambolic thrashing at the hands of West Brom. Selhurst Park feels like one of the last places Thomas Tuchel would pick to do so but without the suspended Thiago Silva, Chelsea have a better chance of putting to bed an unfortunately timed week of turmoil. Palace have a defender enjoying the twilight of his career rather more in Gary Cahill. The former Chelsea stalwart can serve a reminder that he may have been let go a touch too soon and damage their prospects for Champions League qualification next season. Graham Searles
