Injury boost for Chelsea as trio return to training ahead of West Brom clash

Three key players; Thiago Silva, Jorginho, and Tammy Abraham, are back in Chelsea training on Tuesday as the Blues prepare for the upcoming West Brom clash.

Silva has not featured in any game since picking up a muscle injury in Tottenham Hotspur win in early February.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel also decided not to rush the 36-year-old’s return to action to allow him to fully recover during the international break.

Similarly, Abraham previously struggled with a persistent ankle problem and also had a setback during training.

Meanwhile, Jorginho picked up a knee injury, as confirmed by Italy boss Roberto Mancini, and missed international duty with the national team.

These three, along with those who are not on international duty, including Christian Pulisic who recently returned from the USA camp, and several academy players, had a training session at Cobham training session on this afternoon.

Unfortunately, N’Golo Kante who has also returned to Chelsea after picking up a hamstring injury with France, was not pictured in training.

Tuchel might also face a fresh injury problem after England confirmed that Mason Mount had to undertake recovery work indoors and is doubtful for their next World Cup qualifying game against Poland.

Update: England boss Gareth Southgate said Mount might be fit to play against Poland. However, Callum Hudson-Odoi has left the England U-21 squad and returned to Chelsea due to a shoulder injury.

Chelsea will be back in action in a home Premier League fixture against West Brom on Saturday afternoon, April 3.
