Chelsea vs Newcastle: Tuchel gives injury update on Werner, Havertz, Thiago Silva
Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has said Thiago Silva will miss their Premier League clash with Newcastle.
However, he expects Timo Werner to return and said there is a chance Kai Havertz could feature at Stamford Bridge.
All three players were missing, as the Blues beat Barnsley 1-0 to qualify for the FA Cup quarter-final on Thursday night.
“It’s Friday and we still have three training sessions. It should be absolutely okay for Timo Werner to come back.
“It’s maybe too close for Kai still and for sure [that’s also the case] for Thiago.
“For Thiago we are aiming for Southampton, we are trying hard. Let’s see if we make it, I cannot promise.
“For Kai, let’s see if he’s out today, I’m not sure. It will be a very short time for Kai so maybe he will be missing this match as well,” Tuchel said.
