Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has provided the latest update on Cesar Azpilicueta, Hakim Ziyech, Reece James, Trevoh Chalobah and Thiago Silva ahead of his side’s Premier League tie with Burnley on Saturday evening.

Chelsea will, on Saturday evening, take on Burnley in an away Premier League fixture at Turf Moor.

Tuchel’s men head to the game after beating Luton Town 3-2 in the FA Cup encounter on Wednesday.

Providing fitness updates on his players, Tuchel said at his post-match press conference on Friday: “We have no fresh injuries.

“I still have to talk to the fitness coaches and the doctors after this press conference.

“Azpi was not in training yesterday, so this will be a bit too close, unfortunately for him.”

“Hakim was in training yesterday and seems good, so hopefully, he can come back,” Tuchel added.

“Reece James also did training, so no problems or reactions so far after his two matches.

“The guys who were not with us in Luton Town because of minor injuries like Trevoh Chalobah and Thiago Silva were back in training yesterday and seem fine, so good to go.”
