Chelsea are beginning to show their promise following a huge summer of spending in the transfer market.
The Blues, who spent more than £220 on players such as Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, and Hakim Ziyech, among others, won their third straight Premier League game at the weekend.
Goals from Ben Chilwell, Tammy Abraham, Thiago Silva, and Timo Werner secured a 4-1 win for Frank Lampard’s side to take them up to fifth in the table – three points off table-topping Leicester.
Chelsea head into the international break as the division’s top scorers and have four wins in their last four games in all competitions.
Competition for places will be fierce so both players and the manager will hope they return from playing for their countries unscathed.
Here is a round-up of all the very latest Chelsea injury news ahead of their trip to Newcastle on November 21.

“We have to constantly reinvent ourselves. You lose players because of Covid-19 infections or there are others who get injured because we’re playing a lot of games.
“We’re not machines. We have seen recent studies showing that it is more likely that we are going to get injured after having played every three days four or five times.
“It is very worrying for us.”
He should be fit to play for Chelsea against Newcastle, however.
