Chelsea attacking midfielder Kai Havertz is back in training after self-isolating for the required ten days following his positive test for the virus.
The 21-year-old should be in contention to face Newcastle tomorrow, although it remains to be seen whether the German will be ready to start the game.
Havertz hasn’t played since the end of last month, having missed the 4-1 win over Sheffield United before the international break. He was also not part of Germany’s squad as he recovered from the virus but supporters on Twitter are confident he’ll feature versus the Magpies:

The midfielder has had a mixed start to his career in England, having scored just one goal and contributed two assists in seven Premier League appearances but the £71m that Chelsea spent on the player was an investment for the long term.
Chelsea fans will be expecting to see more from Havertz in the coming months but, at the moment, they are simply glad that he is back available.
