Chelsea boss Tuchel admits concern over Thiago Silva muscle injury

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel admits he's concerned about Thiago Silva.

The German confirmed Silva had suffered a muscle injury during Thursday's win over Tottenham.

Asked about Silva, Tuchel said: "I saw Thiago with a big strap around his muscle but we have to wait.

"It's worrying because it's a muscle injury."

Tuchel will be sweating on Silva's fitness after the 36-year-old played a key role in Chelsea securing three consecutive clean sheets.

Kurt Zouma is also sidelined with injury and could miss Sunday's clash with Sheffield United.
