Tuchel confirms double Chelsea injury blow

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed a double injury blow ahead of the Premier League encounter against Leeds United on Saturday.



The Blues are presently fourth in the standings after a nine-match unbeaten run which has included six wins and three draws.

Ahead of tomorrow's game, Tuchel has revealed that Thiago Silva has suffered a fresh setback with a recurrence of his hamstring concern.

Meanwhile, Tammy Abraham is also expected to miss the game as he is still nursing an ankle injury picked up against Newcastle United.

Abraham has not made the matchday squad in the last three matches and Tuchel recently emphasised that it was tactical.

He is now struggling with the after effects of the injury sustained against the Magpies and is out for an undefined period.

The Blues are two points ahead of West Ham United for the fourth spot, but the Hammers have a game in hand.

They could move five points clear tomorrow as the Hammers don't play until Sunday evening at Manchester United.
