Chelsea FC XI vs Newcastle: squad news confirmed, roster predicted, latest Premier League injuries today

| Today Headlines | Google News

The German has Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Ruben Loftus-Cheek again available after the three missed the Carabao Cup midweek victory over Southampton, but Mateo Kovacic was ruled out “for a few weeks” after suffering a hamstring injury in training Thursday.

“He will be out for a few weeks as he will miss next week for sure and then there will be an international break,” Tuchel said. “It’s a minimum of those weeks.”

The re-fit Loftus-Cheek are a candidate to replace Kovacic in midfield, although it seems likely that Tuchel will choose to pair N’Golo Kante with Jorginho.

Azpilicueta and Christensen’s returns give Tuchel options in defense, and with a trip to Malmö coming up in the Champions League on Tuesday, he will likely use some rotation.

Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner however remain injured, so Kai Havertz is expected to lead the line again.

Chelsea predicted XI: (3-4-2-1) Mendy; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Silva; James, Kanté, Jorginho, Chilwell; Mont, Hudson-Odoi; Havertz

List of injuries: Kovacic, Pulisic, Werner, Lukaku
