Injury Updates Emerge On Silva, Havertz And Pulisic Ahead Of Rennes Clash

Injury Updates Silva Havertz Pulisic Rennes Clash

Chelsea can seal their place in the knockout stages with a win in tomorrow’s Champions League clash with Rennes as they look to continue their impressive form.

Boss Frank Lampard has revealed he will be able to call upon Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz for the trip.

Christian Pulisic will stay behind in London though as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.

Lampard said ahead of the short flight to France: “Kai and Thiago will both travel and they are fit for selection.

“Pulisic stays back and doesn’t travel but the good news is that he has had some aggression in and he will do some physical work. Hopefully he will be in contention at the weekend.”

Silva was given time to recover from international duty with Brazil, following games with Venezuela and Uruguay in South America.
