Chelsea supporters had a tint of fear in their voice when they learned that several key members of Liverpool’s squad had returned to training before their clash tomorrow.

Anfield will be the setting for Thursday’s highly anticipated Premier League encounter between Thomas Tuchel’s Blues and Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.

A spot back in the top four is up for grabs, with both clubs desperate for Champions League’s football next season.

Liverpool were handed a huge boost ahead of the tie in what’s been a season of bad news.

Diogo Jota, Fabinho, Alisson Becker and James Milner took part in first-team training yesterday, having all been previously injured or absent.

This update did not sit well with Chelsea fans, who were hoping their side would be taking on a depleted Reds outfit.

Although this is a massive positive for Liverpool, they are still without influential figures in defence.

Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and auxiliary centre-back Jordan Henderson remain in recovery.

Followers of the Blues can hold onto this fact, whilst also celebrating a couple of their own coming back to fitness.

Thiago Silva has seemingly shaken off the thigh problem he picked up a month ago.

Callum Hudson-Odoi’s ice packed leg against Manchester United was nothing more than a minor problem.

Both could be in contention for Chelsea, but it’s anybody’s guess who Tuchel is going to select for his starting XI.
