Chelsea has been given injury boost as Thiago Silva has returned to training with the blues ahead of the Premier League showdown.
Silva has not played since a 1-0 win over Tottenham on February 4, with a nagging thigh injury that kept him on the sidelines.
The former PSG star was named among the substitutes against Everton earlier this month, but a minor setback delayed his return.
Chelsea have had no problems in the absence of the Brazilian and have conceded just two goals in the 14 games since Tuchel arrived at Stamford Bridge in late January.
However, Silva appears poised to return during a crucial period of the season, pictured again in training camp Tuesday and sending a hopeful message to Blues fans on Twitter.
“Happy to be back doing what I love! May God bless our new beginnings,’ he wrote

Chelsea will face West Brom in the return of the Premier League this weekend.
Another Chelsea star in contention for a return is Tammy Abraham, who also returned to training this week.
The forward struggled to maintain a first-team spot during Tuchel’s first month in charge in West London but has also been struggling with an ankle problem.
