All the very latest on the Chelsea injury front ahead of the Blues’ clash with Everton at Stamford Bridge on Monday evening in the Premier League
Chelsea are back in Premier League action this evening when they will look to continue their unbeaten run against Everton.
The Blues defeated Liverpool away from home last time out and they could further strengthen their top four hopes with a win over an Everton side also seeking Champions League qualification.
Thomas Tuchel’s men are now on a run of 11 games unbeaten across all competitions and they will be keen to continue that record against the Toffees to remain in fourth and move within three points of third-placed Leicester City.
With the games continuing to come thick and fast, Tuchel could do with being able to call upon every player within his squad, but injury issues are still a minor problem, with two players facing the prospect of missing the clash with Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
Chelsea were once again without centre-back Silva for the clash with Liverpool in midweek as he continued to recover from a thigh injury.
The Brazilian has made a return to training but Tuchel confirmed the defender would not be risked against Liverpool.
Speaking during his pre-match press conference, the Blues head coach said: “Thiago made his first training with the team but did not finish the last exercise, just to be taking no risk.
“I assume he trains today [Tuesday] but not 100% so he will not join us for Liverpool.”
Therefore, he could play some part against the Toffees on Monday, but it is more likely that he may return against Leeds United at Elland Road next weekend
Earlier this week, Tuchel said the former Aston Villa loanee was suffering with an ankle problem in Tuesday’s training session.
The 23-year-old was not included in the matchday squad for the trip to Liverpool, meaning he missed the second match in succession.
“Tammy had some problems with the ankle yesterday so we will see,” Tuchel said. “‘It’s my job to push him to his limits. We will not stop doing this and supporting him. It was a tough decision, but we have to make these decisions.
“It’s a part of my job I do not like, but at the same I like it because it means everybody is available.

“We communicate these decisions clearly. We have to cut it down to 18 players. It’s not always a punishment or a signal, and that was the case here. It was just a choice from alternatives.
“He lacks a bit of luck Tammy, not only in games but also in training, and once the last touch comes back he will be a player we will push forward.”
It is currently unclear whether or not the striker will make his return against Everton.
