Thomas Tuchel has insisted that defender Tiago Silva will be out of the next two games for Chelsea due to a thigh injury sustained in the game against Tottenham Hostpurs.
The velteran defender walked off the pitch a little after Chelsea took the lead in the 24th minute against Tottenham, and due to that injury he didn't feature in the game against Sheffield United.
Due to the injury, Tiago Silva would miss the trip to Barnsley on Thursday for the FA cup 5th round tie, he will also miss the game against Newcastle United on Sunday at Stamford bridge.
According to Thomas Tuchel, he should be back for the Southampton's game before the blues take on Athletico Madrid in the UEFA champions league round of 16 tie. But he will be likely rested in the Southampton game in order for him to be fully fit for the Champions league clash with Athletico Madrid.
Tiago Silva's absent could pave the way for Kurt Zouma to start at the back of Chelsea defence, but the line up hasn't been favoring him as he hasn't played a single minute since Thomas Tuchel was appointed as manager.
That means young defender Andreas Christensen will likely retain his place at the back with Antonio Rudiger, just as he has done since the Tottenham Hostpurs game.
