Setback for Thomas Tuchel. Thiago Silva had to retire injured before reaching the middle of the final against Manchester City. The 36-year-old veteran Brazilian central defender has had muscle problems and left the field in the 39th minute of play.
The Chelsea defender was injured when he jumped for a ball with Phil Foden. Silva has cleared the skin, but in the fall he noticed a puncture in the adductor of his left leg.
The center-back requested the change during the hydration break and Christensen entered his place shortly after.
