Pochettino speaks to the press in just under an hour from now as a place in the Carabao Cup semi-finals is at stake.
Newcastle travel down to Stamford Bridge off the back of the victory against West London rivals Fulham and will be taking on a Chelsea side who have 9 missing.
The following players that are on the injury report according to Chelsea FC are; Sanchez, Cucurella, James, Chalobah, Chilwell, Chukwuemeka, Fofana, Ugochukwu & Lavia.
Madueke is the latest player to return to full training.
Nkunku and Gusto continue to be in full training which can only be good news for Pochettino whilst Marc Cucurella has recently undergone surgery which will leave him on the injury report for a few months.
The Carabao Cup presents an opportunity of silverware but Pochettino is going to have overcome this latest challenge with minimal excuses as Newcastle have an injury crisis themselves.
