Confirmed: Chelsea squad list for Newcastle match

Tomorrow’s squad: Pochettino confirms two out, one in

Chelsea’s weekly injury update gives some details, but never quite enough, and Mauricio Pochettino is always asked for those extra bits in his press conference to follow.

Today’s update from the club listen Romeo Lavia and Christopher Nkunku as being in the “reconditioning phase” of their rehab, and nobody was quite sure what that meant. Pochettino confirmed in his presser just now that neither would be in the squad for tomorrow’s game – although it sounds like they’re not far away.

The good news is that Levi Colwill will be back, after missing his England call up to recover from a should problem that also kept him out of our last games too. Pochettino said the defender would be in “the squad” tomorrow.

This perhaps means he won’t be in the starting team, as the manager’s words were quite deliberately chosen. But that’s just speculation for now.
