Potential fresh key injury for Tuchel after worrying video of Chelsea star emerged

Chelsea defender Thiago Silva was spotted limping out of Wembley after the FA Cup final defeat to Liverpool on Saturday.

It was the 37-year-old’s 44th appearance for Chelsea, 49 in total, this season, which is quite remarkable for a player at his age.

It is hardly a surprise that playing full 120 minutes against quick Liverpool forwards took quite the toll on his body.

The Brazil international even had to receive treatment during the game. Even more worryingly, he was then seen limping out of the stadium.

Hopefully, it is not an injury, but it would not be a surprise if Thomas Tuchel decided to rest Silva for Thursday’s clash against Leicester City.

The Blues would likely only need one point from the remaining two games, including next weekend’s match against already-relegated Watford, to secure a top-four finish.
