Thiago Silva sustained a thigh injury in Chelsea’s victory over Tottenham and missed their latest outing against Sheffield United.
Thiago Silva is however set to return for Chelsea’s Premier League game against Southampton which means the 36 years old will miss Chelsea’s FA Cup clash with Barnsley and their next Premier League game against Newcastle.
Tuchel claims that his return against Southampton is ambitious but should be possible.
Tuchel on Thiago Silva:
Thiago we are fighting every day. He will be for sure out for the FA Cup. It will take several days, but we set the goal for Southampton, that’s maybe realistic but ambitious.
