Tuchel explains why Thiago Silva and Pulisic missed Chelsea’s win over Sheffield United


The Blues got their third league win in a row to rise to fifth place in Yorkshire and there was good news on the injury front as well.
Thomas Tuchel confirmed why Christian Pulisic and Thiago Silva weren’t in the Chelsea squad for the 2-1 away win over Sheffield United, while he allayed fears about Timo Werner’s health.

Werner set up both goals in the win at Bramall Lane but came off in the 75th minute to get treatment on his thigh after being involved in both Mason Mount and Jorginho’s goals.

Meanwhile, Silva also picked up a thigh injury during the 1-0 win at the Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday and had a scan after the match to confirm the severity of his problem. Tuchel explained why he and surprise omission Pulisic were left out on Sunday.
