Tuchel issues injury update on two key Chelsea stars

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has affirmed that Thiago Silva and Tammy Abraham have endured injury difficulties in preparing.

Accordingly, the two players will miss the Blues’ down against Leeds United on Saturday.

Thiago Silva was named among the substitutes for Chelsea in their 2-0 success over Everton on Monday.

It was normal that he would include against Leeds yet one more injury mishap will keep the veteran protector down and out.

Tammy Abraham keeps on battling with a lower leg issue he got in Chelsea’s success over Burnley toward the finish of January.

In what was a somewhat early pre-match gathering, Thomas Tuchel gave the most recent on the circumstance encompassing the two players.

“Thiago had a little setback in training at the end of the training session the day before yesterday. He felt at the very end something around the same area where he was injured so we had to take him off, so he is back into a transition phase but not back into team training.”

“Tammy Abraham has still the ankle pain from the tackle against Burnley”

“Yesterday he came off [in training], the day before he was fine, so these two are out for tomorrow and everybody else is available.”

Tuchel focused on additional worry for Abraham, who has now struggled injury for right around a month and a half.

“It is still the pain from a tackle a long time ago now. He does not feel really 100 per cent free and comfortable and I can see it in training, even if he finishes training I see it is not 100 per cent that he has trust in it.”

“I have 100 per-cent trust in our medical department, they are fantastic and they take care of it now. First of all it is most important he feels safe and free and feels zero pain, and then we can think about his comeback.”
