Chelsea team news

Here is the latest Chelsea team news before their meeting with Leeds United on Wednesday.

Thiago Silva missed the League Cup final after suffering a groin injury against Crystal Palace earlier this month.

But he was back in training before the trip to Wembley, suggesting there is hope that the Brazilian’s return is not too far away.

A thigh issue has ruled Romeo Lavia out of action since December and Mauricio Pochettino confirmed last week that the midfielder was yet to return to team training. His return date remains up in the air.

Reece James underwent hamstring surgery in Finland just before Christmas and is yet to return to team training. The right-back is not believed to be close to a return.
