Chelsea return to action from the International break with a game against Newcastle on Saturday, November 21. Ahead of the game, the Blues manager Frank Lampard has provided an update on Ben Chilwell and confirmed that two players will miss their trip to St James’ Park.
“Pulisic is not fit for Newcastle but has stepped up his training,” Lampard said.
“Havertz is back, isolation is over and tested negative so trained two days ago to get individually his fitness back.
“Silva has just landed, he probably won’t go to Newcastle because of the journey.
“Still waiting on some covid testing.
“Unfortunately some are arriving back this afternoon, so with the 12.30pm kick off it brings a lot of challenges.”
“I haven’t seen him yet,” Lampard said of Chilwell. “I am positive that he will be OK but I’ll have to see later today.”
Chelsea are currently 5th in the league table with three points behind the league leaders Leicester City.
