Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel faces one of his hardest decisions as Chelsea boss when the Blues face Everton at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

With Thiago Silva back from injury, Tuchel must decide whether to stick with Andreas Christensen or drop the Danish defender for Silva.

Silva was undroppable before his injury in the victory over Tottenham Hotspur but Christensen has impressed in the absence of the Brazilian and was one of our best players against Liverpool.

Christensen’s form over the past month has been so impressive that Chelsea are reportedly keen to offer the academy graduate a new contract.

Given his experience, know-how and talent, the 36 year old will be expected to go straight back into the Blues’ starting XI but that will also be harsh on Christensen.

This is the conundrum that faces Tuchel ahead of the game against Everton.
