Chelsea will welcome back Kai Havertz and Thiago Silva for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Rennes.

Both players did not feature in the win over Newcastle United last Saturday.

However, the Blues will still be without Christian Pulisic.

Manager Frank Lampard was hopeful the American will become available for selection after the trip to France.

"Kai and Thiago both travel and they are fit for selection," Lampard said in a pre-match press conference.

"Christian stays back and doesn't travel but the good news he has had good progression in the last week. The reason he is staying back is to get some physical work in to hopefully have him ready for selection for this weekend and onwards."
