Tuchel confirms defender remains out

The Brazilian has been absent since the win over Spurs a month ago, a game he exited during the first half with a thigh injury. Having returned to outside training last week, Thiago Silva joined his team-mates on the grass yesterday.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference and ahead of a final training session before tomorrow’s game, Tuchel reported the trip to Anfield will come too soon for Thiago Silva. Callum Hudson-Odoi, who came off at half-time on Sunday, is fine, however.

‘Thiago made his first training with the team but did not finish the last exercise, not because of any pain but just to be aware of taking a risk,’ said the boss.

‘I assume he will train today but he is not at 100 per cent so he will not join the squad for Liverpool.

‘Everyone else is available. Callum has no issue at all. He was training full with the team yesterday.

‘Tammy had some problems yesterday on his ankle again. Let’s see how this works out today.’
