Chelsea look to have been handed a boost on the personnel front, ahead of their upcoming meeting with Liverpool.
Liverpool vs Chelsea
Chelsea will face a trip to Anfield on Thursday evening for a tie which could be huge in the race for a Champions League spot.
The Blues will head into the midweek Premier League action 5th in the English top-flight.
However, Chelsea are unbeaten in nine outings across all competitions under Thomas Tuchel and currently sit just one point behind 4th place.
As for Liverpool, their win over PL basement dwellers Sheffield United on Sunday ended their four-game losing streak in the league.
And should they beat Chelsea on Thursday, they too could overtake West Ham for 4th spot.
Silva & Hudson-Odoi training
As a result, though Liverpool haven’t been anywhere near their best of late, Tuchel is no doubt hoping to field as strong a squad as possible for this tie.
And as mentioned above, Chelsea do look to have been handed a boost on the personnel front ahead of the game.
Callum Hudson-Odoi was withdrawn at half-time over the weekend during the Londoners’ 0-0 draw with Manchester United. He was then pictured sat with what looked to be some sort of ice pack on his leg.

Whatever the issue was, though, it doesn’t appear to have been too serious.
This comes with the winger having been pictured in Chelsea training on Tuesday.
Thiago Silva, who has missed Chelsea’s last four league games, can also be seen in the background of the first photo:
Silva back in training today, not that he’s been missed too badly. Christensen has stepped up. Still a boost with so many big games coming up.
