Hello everyone, and welcome to football.london’s live Chelsea blog on Tuesday.
It’s just a day until the Blues take on London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup semi-finals and there is plenty for Thomas Tuchel to consider.
There has been updates on the respective fitness of Ben Chilwell and Reece James, whilst Timo Werner and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have both returned to training ahead of the game.
Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku has also returned to Chelsea contention following his explosive comments. We will be bringing you the latest on the Belgian’s current situation with the club throughout the day.
Elsewhere, the January transfer window is now a few days old and the Blues have already made a major signing by tying Thiago Silva down to a new one-year deal.
