Chelsea handed double injury boost ahead of Malmo tie

Antonio Rudiger and Thiago Silva have resumed training ahead of Chelsea's clash against Malmo on Wednesday. 

The duo missed the weekend's 1-0 win over Brentford but now are in contention for the home Champions Lague tie. Silva was on an international break with Brazil and returned late meaning he had no enough time to prepare. 

Meanwhile, Rudiger has been on the sidelines nursing a back problem he picked while on international duty with Germany. Thomas Tuchel was short of options for the Brentford game and that led to the Chelsea manager giving 22-year-old Malang Sarr a Premier League debut.

The Blues go into Wednesday’s Champions League game, second in Group H and three points behind Juventus, who beat the Blues 1-0 on matchday two at the end of last month.
