Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen is available to face Brighton tonight.

Blues manager Thomas Tuchel could also include Thiago Silva against the Seagulls after he was forced off with a back problem in the FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester City.

Tuchel, however, is wary of how much game time the Brazilian has had to play and does not want to overload the veteran defender.

Mateo Kovacic remains the only absentee ahead of the game, with the midfielder still suffering from a hamstring problem.

Asked about team news ahead of the game, Tuchel said: "I expect Andreas to be back and available.

"Thiago it is a bit different, but because of acute overload. He is not injured so we have to take care of his overload. I think and hope that it is only Kova that we have out with injury."

Chelsea predicted lineup: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso; Mount, Havertz, Pulisic

Injury list: Kovacic

Doubts: Thiago Silva, Christensen
