Chelsea vs Newcastle: Why isn’t Raheem Sterling playing – Graham Potter

Chelsea manager Graham Potter has given reason to keep striker Raheem Sterling out of the squad for Saturday’s game against Newcastle.

Sterling, who was named on Thursday in England’s 26-man squad for the World Cup in Qatar, was expected to start against Newcastle at St James’ Park.

However, it was surprising that the former Manchester City star was not even on the bench for Chelsea against Newcastle.

Speaking to the media before kick-off, Potter confirmed that the 27-year-old fell ill on Friday, which is why he was not in the squad to face Newcastle.

“He was sick yesterday. A little bit sick,” Potter said while providing an update on Sterling.

“Nothing serious, just a few migraine attacks for Raheem, and he’s unable to travel.”
