Let’s get to it.

Pep on Chelsea/priorities game-

“We cannot deny we have one eye on Newcastle,” said Pep.

“Chelsea is a prestigious game for us, but Newcastle is a final.

“The team selection will depend on physical condition of the players.

“We take a look at what will come next, not just the game against Chelsea.”

Pep on fitness-

“Yeah, but still the team is not fit.

“I don’t know when we will be fit perfectly to play every three days.

“We have some kicks after the game, which is normal. You have to see day by day how we can avoid injuries.

“We have to handle the situation, qualify mathematically for Champions League and that is what we have to do.”

“We have some kicks after the game [on Monday], which is normal. You have to see day by day how we can avoid injuries. We have to handle the situation, qualify mathematically for the UCL and that is what we have to do.”
