Chelsea get double injury boost as Silva, Havertz train

Thiago, Havertz train ahead Saturday tie

 

Chelsea have received a double injury boost with Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz returning to training ahead of Saturday’s clash with Southampton.

Silva, 36, has recovered from a thigh injury sustained in the win over Spurs earlier this month.

And Havertz, 21, is available after missing the last four matches with a knock picked up at Cobham.

Both men are now ready to play for Chelsea when they visit the Saints this weekend.

But with the Blues in fine form under Thomas Tuchel, it remains to be seen if either regains their place in the starting XI.

Chelsea have won five of their six games under the German tactician, including four straight wins in the Premier League.

And a win against Southampton would put the Blues in good stead for tough upcoming clashes against Atletico Madrid and Manchester United.

Brazilian centre-back Silva been a smash hit since his free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain last summer, clocking up 21 appearances in all competitions.

And many would expect Silva to return to the middle in place of Andreas Christensen – depending on his fitness levels.

However, Havertz’s time at Stamford Bridge has been less successful so far.

The German playmaker cost a whopping £71million to sign from Bayer Leverkusen, but he has managed just one goal in 18 league outings.
