Chelsea injury news: Nkunku, Lavia and James latest update ahead of Newcastle clash

Chelsea entered the international break on a positive note after picking up a spectacular 4-4 draw against Manchester City. The Citizens took the lead on three occasions but were pegged back each time, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side managing to earn a point from the home encounter in the end.  

The Blues are now set to visit Newcastle United on 25 November in another tricky fixture, available to watch via the football streams. Ahead of the blockbuster Premier League clash at St James’ Park, we will discuss all the latest Chelsea injury news. 

1- Christopher Nkunku 

Christopher Nkunku is yet to make his debut at Stamford Bridge since joining the Londoners from RB Leipzig in the summer. Pochettino has revealed that the 26-year-old is targeting an ambitious return soon, and we could see him as part of the matchday squad on Saturday against Newcastle. 

2- Romeo Lavia  

Romeo Lavia is another summer signing who is yet to make his first appearances for the Blues. He has been recovering from an ankle issue and could be available for selection by December. 

3- Reece James 

Reece James was included in the England’s squad by Southgate for the two November’s fixtures. But the right-back turned down the opportunity because he wanted to focus on his fitness for Chelsea first.  

4- Conor Gallagher 

Manager Gareth Southgate confirmed Conor Gallagher had picked up a knock in the home match against City. But the English boss also said the 23-year-old was fine to start in the qualifiers for the national team.

The midfielder should be okay to be part of the Blues squad against Newcastle. 

5- Wesley Fofana 

Wesley Fofana suffered an ACL injury during the pre-season. He is currently recovering from the knock but we don’t expect him back for a few more months. 



Blue is the colour is an honest insight to the World of Chelsea FC. Not always pretty, sometimes rather cynical, but always realistic.
