Chelsea get Abraham fitness boost for Saints clash but Silva still out

Abraham was forced off early on in the midweek win over Newcastle but Thomas Tuchel offered a positive update on his fitness ahead of the trip to St. Mary’s.

“We are very happy that Tammy is very, very good, feels very good and is free for training today at 3pm,” Tuchel said. “And if things things go well he’s in the squad [to face Southampton]. 

There was less good news on Silva, though, who was photographed in training yesterday but is not yet fit enough to feature, while Christian Pulisic is also a major doubt. 

“Thiago will be out for the game,” Tuchel added. “He is not ready for the game. 

“We have some issues with the calf of Christian Pulisic. Nothing big, he just feels tight. “He is in a bit of a zone of risk, that’s how I understood it yesterday. There’s a big question mark for Christian and Thiago is out.”
