Chelsea boss Tuchel admits major absences for Brentford clash

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admits they're carrying several injuries facing Brentford tomorrow.

Tuchel will be without several players for his side's west London derby with Brentford on Saturday, although Romelu Lukaku is available.

"Thiago [Silva] will be back in the afternoon, hopefully safe from this match in Brazil," said Tuchel.

"We had our talk and tactical training, he missed all that. He played 90 minutes and had 12 hours of travelling so that gives you the answer.

"Toni Rudiger is injured, as he came back injured from the national team. Christian Pulisic is still injured. We also have doubts with Hakim Ziyech who has missed the last couple of sessions with a headache.

"Romelu is fine and will be involved tomorrow."
