Chelsea are set to face Newcastle United on Saturday as the Premier League action resumes.
Ahead of the match head coach Thomas Tuchel has talked to the press and provided the latest injury updates. He said:
“Better news than ahead of Southampton. Timo and Romelu are still out. Pulisic joined training but still too early. Everybody else is available.
“Cesar, N’Golo and Ruben are all training.
“It is realistic that their (Lukaku Werner) target is after the international break. For Pulisic we are looking at the Burnley match. If everything goes alright he will be ready to play.”
Tuchel also talked about upcoming opponents Newcastle:
“Atmosphere in the stadium for them, the experience right now has huge value to play against us. We cannot fixate on being so-called favourites.
“I like how we have approached these matches, the effort we have put in, exactly what we want from our team.
“We know very well that you can turn things around and close gaps in 90 minutes. Newcastle will try to put up their best performance but we are responsible for us, to set new standards and meet what we demand. We expect a tough game.
