Chelsea are set to face Southampton on Saturday as the Premier League action returns.

Ahead of the match head coach Thomas Tuchel has talked to the press and provided injury updates. Tammy Abraham will be fit for the Saturday’s match, while Thiago Silva and Christian Pulisic will be unavailable.

“We are very happy that Tammy is good and free for training today at 3pm, if things go well then he is in the squad,” said the Blues’ boss.

“Thiago will be out for the game, he’s not ready and we have some issues with Christian Pulisic’s calf, it feels tight.”

Tuchel also added more on Pulisic:

“It is our job to bring the best out of him. It is a challenge now to hold his level, to improve and maintain it. We are not worried or concerned, the medical department is on that.

“He stopped training yesterday, I would not say it is an injury, it is just risk management that relies on his history. The main thing for Christian is to stay positive.”
