Thiago Silva drops early Chelsea team news hint as Thomas Tuchel's side prepare for Leicester

Chelsea will be eager to bounce back from the club's third successive defeat in the FA Cup final against Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening.

 After securing their place in the Champions League, the Blues can make sure that they finish in third place with a win over the Foxes - or likely draw, given their far superior goal difference over fourth placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Thomas Tuchel's side head into the clash having suffered a handful of injuries against Liverpool, with stalwarts Kai Havertz and Timo Werner pulled from proceedings.

 Mateo Kovacic has also been ruled out with an ankle injury, whilst Andreas Christensen, who pulled out of the FA Cup final squad on the morning of the game , is a doubt for the clash with Leicester.

Meanwhile, Thiago Silva also suffered from a battle with cramp in extra-time of that clash. However, it looks as though the Brazilian is set to play at least some part in the game. That's if his latest team news hint on Instagram means anything, anyways.

As pictured below, Silva posted an edited image of him looking ready to go for the all-important game at Stamford Bridge.

Make of that what you will, but player's don't always tend to post something unless they're due to be involved in a game, and although there was a slight concern about the 37-year-old's fitness heading into the clash, it looks as though he's made a swift enough recovery to start from the get-go.
