Chelsea are preparing for a very important Premier League clash against Liverpool on Sunday but could be without few new signings due to injuries and fitness issues.

According to the latest information we received, Hakim Ziyech, Ben Chilwell and Thiago Silva are set to miss the game against Liverpool but Pulisic is expected to return as a starter or a substitute.

Ziyech is said to be gearing up to return to training sometime next week and could be in the team for West Brom.

Thiago Silva is likely to feature in the Carabao Cup games against Barnsley at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, September 23.

Ben Chilwell returned to individual training this week but the nature of his injury (heel) and the fact he has not played a game for a long time could force the technical team to give him more time before using in a competitive game.

We understand that Pulisic has resumed training with the team but it’s not clear if Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will use him as a starter or a substitute.

Despite suffering a dead leg against Brighton on Monday, Timo Werner is likely to be in the starting XI against Liverpool on Sunday.

Injury setbacks can affect the scheduled return date, So, we wait for Lampard to give an update on the current situation in his Press Conference tomorrow.
