Thomas Tuchel offers injury update ahead of Newcastle after 'last-minute' Carabao Cup changes


Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has provided an injury update on a trio of players who are out for the weekend's match against Newcastle United.

Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek were all ruled out at the last minute for Chelsea's Carabao Cup victory over Southampton on Tuesday night. Tuchel, though, stated in his post-match press conference that all three players might still be considered for this weekend's trip to Tyneside.

"We hope Azpi is back for the weekend," he said on the club's website. He hurt his shoulder in training the other day when he fell. It hurts a lot, but he's Azpi, and he's tough.
