Scout Scribbles- Cahill and Luiz Both Out of Newcastle Game

Roberto Di Matteo rules David Luiz and Gary Cahill out of Chelsea’s home clash with Newcastle tomorrow. Danny Welbeck could be a doubt for United due to an ankle problem, Matt Jarvis expects to overcome a groin problem for Wolves’ home game with Everton, while Newcastle welcome back Gabriel Obertan and Sylvain Marveuax to the first-team squad ahead of their trip to the Bridge:

David Luiz and Gary Cahill have both been ruled out of Chelsea’s game with Newcastle tomorrow evening. Roberto Di Matteo confirmed the defensive duo will be missing from the Magpies clash, though with Branislav Ivanovic available after a three-game suspension, his options at the back have increased from Sunday’s squad against QPR. Ivanovic is likely to partner John Terry in the heart of defence against Alan Pardew’s visitors, with Jose Bosingwa perhaps favourite to get the nod over Paulo Ferreira at right-back. Although reports earlier today suggested Luiz is on course to recover in time for Saturday’s FA Cup Final with Liverpool, the interim Chelsea boss gave no indication of a time scale for a return.

Reports suggest Danny Welbeck could be an injury doubt for United after leaving Old Trafford with a protective boot on his ankle last night. Welbeck was in decent form heading into the City match, with two goals and a pair of assists in his last couple of Gameweeks but dropped out of the starting lineup as a result of United’s change to a 4-5-1. Climbing off the bench with just over half an hour left, he was subject to a heavy challenge by Nigel De Jong, resulting in Sir Alex Ferguson and Roberto Mancini squaring up on the Etihad touchline – with United needs goals on Sunday, Javier Hernandez could be a decent differential as Swansea roll up to Old Trafford.

Matt Jarvis expects to overcome the groin problem that forced him off at Swansea last weekend. The Wolves winger lasted 71 minutes at the Liberty, returning two goals and the maximum bonus points for his Fantasy owners and continues to be the main performer for the midlands outfit under Terry Connor, having scored five of the side’s 10 goals since the dismissal of Mick McCarthy. With Wolves grabbing four at Swansea last weekend, it seems as if caution has been thrown firmly to the wind and, with their final home game of the season against Everton followed by a trip to Wigan, Jarvis has the potential to continue his recent strong form.

Gabriel Obertan has declared himself fit and available for Newcastle’s trip to Chelsea tomorrow evening. The winger has failed to feature since Gameweek 28 due to an ankle problem but is likely to be on the bench as Newcastle look to bounce back from their 4-0 thrashing at Wigan last weekend. Sylvain Marveaux is likely to join him – the Frenchman has recovered from hip and groin problems which have ruled him out since November.
