Good News To Chelsea As Two Key Defenders Return To Training

Thomas Tuchel received a big boost a head of this week’s Champions League clash against Malmo as two defenders returned to full training at Cobham on Monday.

Chelsea return to European campaign on Wednesday when they host the Swedish side at the Stamford bridge, the head coach looks set to be able to call upon two of his first team members who missed Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Brentford in the premier League match day 8.

Absence of Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger left the coach short of defensive options and most Chelsea fans worried but Trevoh Chalobah, Andreas Christensen and Malang Sarr performed admirably and more promising to future defensive solid partnership. Its great news to Chelsea family to have the news that the two defenders are back and available for the selection.

Rudiger had picked up an injury while representing Germany during international break while Thiago had returned late from international duty with Brazil leaving him without time to recover for the Saturday’s fixture. Hakim Ziyech who also had missed the fixture due to a painful headache was also part of the squad that trained on Monday joined by Marcos who also missed.
