Thiago Silva has returned to training with Chelsea in a boost for Thomas Tuchel ahead of the Premier League run-in.

Silva has not featured since the 1-0 victory over Tottenham on 4 February, with a troublesome thigh injury keeping him on the sidelines. The former PSG star was named among the subs against Everton earlier this month but a minor setback delayed his return.

Chelsea have not struggled in the Brazilian’s absence and have conceded just two goals in the 14 games since Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge at the end of January.

Silva however appears set to return for a crucial period of the season, pictured back on the training pitch on Tuesday and sending a hopeful message to Blues fans on Instagram.

‘Happy to be back doing what I love! May God bless our new beginnings,’ he wrote.

Chelsea take on West Brom as the Premier League returns this weekend.

Another Chelsea star in contention to return is Tammy Abraham, who was also back in training this week.

The striker struggled to hold down a first-team role during Tuchel’s first month in charge at west London but has also been struggling with an ankle problem.

Chelsea reclaimed a place in the Premier League top four prior to the international break and are now just six points behind second place Manchester United.
