Speaking ahead of Saturday's match against Newcastle United, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that he's got very little to be concerned about in terms of injuries. The only player currently unavailable due to injury is goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who will be out for the next several months due to meniscus surgery.

Mourinho confirmed that Willian will once again be available for selection, after missing last weekend's victory over Arsenal due to injury. He was undecided on who will start in place of the suspended Diego Costa, however, with both Radamel Falcao and Loic Remy in the mix.

Mourinho didn't comment on whether Willian would be in contention for a starting role, or whether he's only available as an option for the bench. With a fully fit attacking midfield, including the impressive Kenedy, the manager should have plenty of options at his disposal if the Brazilian is unable to last 90 minutes.
