Thiago and Abraham to miss Leeds clash.

Chelsea will respect Alonso’s decision.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel says his side will be with out Brazilian defender Thiago Silva and Tammy Abraham against Leeds United.

Thiago was named on the bench against Everton on Monday after suffering a muscle injury during the match at Tottenham at the start of February.

“Thiago had a little setback in training at the end of the training session the day before yesterday. He felt at the very end something around the same area where he was injured so we had to take him off, so he is back into a transition phase but not back into team training.

“Tammy Abraham has still the ankle pain from the tackle against Burnley,’ the head coach continued.

“Yesterday he came off [in training], the day before he was fine, so these two are out for tomorrow and everybody else is available.”

Tuchel says Abraham is not 100 percent fit as he noticed it in training but admit he trust medical department to do a great job.

‘It is still the pain from a tackle a long time ago now. He does not feel really 100 per cent free and comfortable and I can see it in training, even if he finishes training I see it is not 100 per cent that he has trust in it.

‘I have 100 per-cent trust in our medical department, they are fantastic and they take care of it now. First of all it is most important he feels safe and free and feels zero pain, and then we can think about his comeback.’
