Team news: Koscielny, Cech, Lucas

Will Laurent Koscielny be back for Monday’s trip to Teesside? Will Petr Cech be between the posts against Middlesbrough?

The boss is hopeful they will and he had the very latest news on our absentees when he faced the press on Friday:

on the latest team news…From the last game, I believe that we have a chance of getting Petr Cech back in the squad. Laurent Koscielny is joining in today. If their tests are positive, they will come back into the squad for Monday’s game.

on Lucas and David Ospina…Ospina and Perez are still out.

on the chances of Cech and Koscielny making Monday's game…Eighty per cent. At the moment it’s pretty good, but sometimes the 20 per cent can play a villain’s part in the final preparation.


More polls coming later in the season!
