Mauricio Pochettino has provided the latest on Chelsea’s list of injured players, as the Blues prepare to face Newcastle United on Monday, March 11.

An update on the official Chelsea website shows that Levi Colwill and Ben Chilwell have not been able to train this week as a result of injury concerns.

Conor Gallagher is also unavailable at the moment, as a result of a viral illness, although, Pochettino says the midfielder has to be assessed in the coming days before a final decision is made on whether or not he’ll play against Newcastle.

“So far, no one [is coming back],” the Chelsea boss said at a press conference when asked about any players returning to the side.

“Same situation as last week and you all know now that we added the list of injury players, Levi and Chilly.

“Gallagher is not training because he has a virus. That is the news from the medical. He is not here in the last three days we were training.

“We will see tomorrow or Saturday if he can have the possibility to train. The problem is you lose weight and the energy is down.”
