Willian is set to undergo a scan on his injured hamstring.

The Brazilian limped off during Chelsea’s Carabao Cup semi-final defeat at Arsenal on Wednesday.

Chelsea do not believe their player’s injury is serious, but he will not be available for Sunday’s FA Cup tie against Newcastle.

Boss Antonio Conte explained: “Today he was with the doctor with the intention to have a scan to evaluate his injury, but I don’t think we are talking about a serious injury.”

Alvaro Morata and keeper Thibaut Courtois have also been ruled out of this weekend’s game, but Cesc Fabregas might be fit enough to play.

Conte has indicated that Ross Barkley will feature against the Magpies.
