Chelsea confirm Thiago Silva injury in latest blow to Graham Potter

Although Silva has avoided serious injury, the Brazilian – who has been Chelsea’s player of the season – is set to be out for several weeks in what is a significant blow to Potter ahead of a crucial spell.

A Chelsea statement said: “Having sustained a knee injury during the first half of Sunday’s match against Tottenham Hotspur, Thiago underwent further assessment and a scan on his return to the training centre on Monday.

Scan results from those assessments have confirmed damage to Thiago’s knee ligaments and he will now work closely with the club’s medical department during his rehabilitation to return to action as soon as possible.”

Silva signed a new one-year contract with Chelsea earlier this month to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2024.
