Chelsea secured their spot in the cup semi-finals by defeating Newcastle in a dramatic penalty shoot-out, following a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night. Callum Wilson opened the scoring for the Magpies, but Mykhailo Mudryk's late equalizer sent the game to penalties, where Chelsea emerged victorious with a 4-2 win.

Post-match, manager Pochettino confirmed that Fernandez had been feeling ill before the game and requested to be substituted due to his condition.

Additionally, Pochettino clarified that Levi Colwill's substitution was not due to injury, but rather tactical reasons and fatigue. Despite the setbacks, Chelsea managed to secure the win and advance to the next round of the cup.
