Mauricio Pochettino provides update on Chelsea duo

Chelsea saw the long-awaited return of Christopher Nkunku on Tuesday evening after he suffered an injury in pre-season.

But the Blues also picked up a few fresh concerns after what was a tough battle vs Newcastle United.

Speaking post-match, Mauricio Pochettino provided updates on both Enzo Fernandez and Levi Colwill after the pair suffered knocks during the quarter-final tie.

On Levi Colwill, the Argentine stated: “Levi was more because my perception was at the end of the first half is that he was a little bit tired. We wanted to put some more offensive players like Malo and to provide more energy in the side. That was why. Also the option of Malo in the second half to continue to play with Levi Colwill but he is going to be ready. It’s nothing, it was only a bit tired in my perception, to change the way we were playing.”

On Fernandez, Pohcettino added: “He asked to go out because he was a little bit sick before the game. He suffered some problems with his stomach. He wanted to play, he said, ‘okay, see if it’s going well’. Rather than well it went not so well and that is why.”
