Chelsea’s head coach Thomas Tuchel has comfirmed that Thiago will sit out of the Liverpool clash today.
The Former PSG player has been sidelined for about a month now and while he has resumed training, Tuchel feels he isn’t still 100% ready and isn’t willing to risk him against Liverpool today at Anfield.
Chelsea however will be with the rest of the squad except Tammy Abraham who is having problems with his ankle.
Speaking in his press conference ahead of the game, Tuchel said on Injuries:
Callum has no issue at all, he was training with the team yesterday. Thiago had full training with the team but didn’t finish the last exercise. Not because of pain. He is not 100% so he will not join the squad yet. Tammy has problems on his ankle
Tuchel also debunk the rumours that Tammy Abraham was being left out of the squad due to injury, insisting it was just his choice:
It was just a choice. He lacks a little bit of luck, Tammy. Not only in the games but in training. When the last touch comes back, he is a player that we will push forward.
