Chelsea will be back in action this evening with a significant Premier League game against Brighton and Hove Albion.
The Blues have spent the previous week contending in the Champions League and FA Cup, advancing past Porto and Manchester City respectively.
However, with just a three-day turnaround after the recent triumph at Wembley Stadium, Thomas Tuchel has several dilemmas regarding his team selection.
Thomas Tuchel gave an optimistic update on the health of Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen ahead of their game with Brighton & Hove Albion.
Tuchel verifies that the Denmark international would be fit enough to feature when Chelsea host Brighton at Stamford Bridge.
He said: “I expect Andreas to be back and available. He did a very good training session yesterday and I hope this will continue.”
Tuchel also notified journalists about Silva’s situation, having only recently recovered from his injury absence. “Thiago is a bit different, He isn’t injured. We have to take care of his overload and see if it makes sense to start again.”
Kovacic sustained a muscular injury last week, and Tuchel was quick to rule the Croatian out of two matches. With just three more days of recovery time, it would come as a surprise if the midfielder was involved against the Seagulls.
Chelsea has some massive games before the end of the season and will need Christensen, Silva, plus every member of the squad fully available if they are to compete on all fronts.
