According to reports, Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic are likely to miss Chelsea’s trip to Newcastle on Saturday.
Havertz tested positive for coronavirus at the start of the month and according to The Athletic via Daily Mail, the illness limited the amount of training he could do at home and the impact on his fitness means he is unlikely to feature at St James’ Park.
Havertz has been given the all-clear to resume training this week and will be involved in the preparations for the game but is not expected to travel.
Pulisic is also expected to miss the game against Newcastle United as he is yet to fully recover from a hamstring injury.
Pulisic sustained the injury during the warm-up ahead of the match against Burnley on October 31 and has not played since.
