Chelsea news LIVE: Mason Mount contract LATEST, Aubameyang in line for debut in Champions League – transfer updates
Morning Chelsea fans
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will train with Chelsea for the first time on Monday.
The striker was bought on transfer deadline day – but is nursing a broken jaw.
But Tuchel believes he will be fit from this week.
He said: “Yes, he trains tomorrow but I cannot tell you if he trains with full contact or individually.
“We’ll need to see. He has the mask and the doctors tell me the mask is good and he feels comfortable with it.
“So he would be ok but we need to check it and we need to check it with no contact, half-contact, and then full contact.
“We need to see how he feels about it. It’s too early to make a prediction but he’ll be in training tomorrow morning and we’ll see.”
Chelsea were reportedly reluctant to loan players to Newcastle United this summer, according to reports.
The Blues viewed the Magpies as a threat, claim the Telegraph, and didn’t want to entertain any business with the Toon Army.
Conor Gallagher, Christian Pulisic and Armando Broja were all linked with a move to the North-East – only to find themselves staying put this summer.
The Premier League is set to review the controversial VAR decisions made at Stamford Bridge and St James’ Park yesterday with the referees’ governing body PGMOL.
The decision comes after both West Ham and Newcastle were denied decisive goals against Chelsea and Crystal Palace respectively.
West Ham had a late equaliser chalked off after Maxwel Cornet capitalised on Edouard Mendy’s spillage.
Referee Andy Madley overturned the goal after Jarrod Bowen made minimal contact with the Chelsea keeper, who stayed down.
