After Manchester United head coach has revealed that some key players will not be available for the Red devils on Sunday, his counterpart has also given injury updates.
Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has confirmed that centre-back, Thiago Silva, will not take part in his side’s Premier League clash against Manchester United on Sunday evening at Stamford Bridge.
Silva had missed Chelsea’s last five games because of a muscle thigh injury.
The Brazilian international sustained the injury during Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month.
However, speaking at his pre-match press conference on Friday, Tuchel revealed that the 36-year-old would return to his squad next week.
“He [Thiago Silva] did an individual session today, on the pitch, and felt it was big progress,” said Tuchel.
“It’s a big step ahead for him, so I hope he will join the group next week.”
Chelsea head to the game after beating Atletico Madrid 1-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The kick-off time for Chelsea vs Man United is 5:30 pm.
