Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed important Chelsea defender Thiago Silva is available for selection for Sunday’s Premier League game against Liverpool.

Silva missed the 1-1 draw against Brighton on Wednesday at Stamford Bridge after picking up a hamstring injury during the 3-1 win against Aston Villa on Boxing Day at Villa Park.

“Thiago has hopefully no reaction and that he is available for Sunday,” Tuchel admitted ahead of the game against Liverpool.

Thiago Silva is expected to return to the starting XI and is likely to play alongside Antonio Rudiger, as well as either Trevoh Chalobah or Cesar Azpilicueta in the back three.
