Latest Chelsea Injury News And Expected Return Dates: Updates On Thiago Silva, Reece James And 7 Others

Chelsea defender Thiago Silva is facing a race against time to be fit for the Carabao Cup final this weekend.

The Brazilian international picked up a groin problem against Crystal Palace and missed the 1-1 draw versus Manchester City on Saturday evening.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino did, however, say that Silva’s injury was “minor”, suggesting the centre-back could make his comeback soon.

Robert Sanchez is back in full training after recovering from a knee injury that has kept him on the sidelines since early December. The Spanish international did not make the bench for the City game but he should be ready for the trip to Wembley.

Expected Return Date – Sunday 25th February v Liverpool (Carabao Cup final)
