Chelsea predicted lineup Team news
Chelsea’s German play maker Kai Havertz is still in self isolation and working on his fitness as reports suggest. The German who was Chelsea’s record signing in Summer has not featured in games against Rennes and the 4-1 win over Sheffield United. Havertz is working on his fitness however he may still be a doubt. Ben Chilwell is dicey after picking up a back injury in the international fixtures with England.
Mateo Kovacic who came back in the starting XI after Havertz’s absence has been playing well and with the team getting results with his involvement Frank Lampard may have to choose between him and Jorginho.
Hakim Ziyech will start as he has had a strong impact in last two games and had 1 goal and 3 assists for the Blues also winning the Man of the match vs Sheffield United.
Chelsea will hopefully have a strong squad given no player gets injured while on International duty.
Chelsea predicted lineup Preview
Chelsea are in fifth place and will only be looking to climb up the table.
Although Newcastle can shock them as they have shocked Tottenham with a draw and beaten Everton 2-1 at home.
Newcastle who were just a whisker away from being another dominant money driven force in Europe as their take over from Mo.Bin Salman could not materialize. Steve Bruce’s men have been decent with Striker Callum Wilson scoring goals and St.Allan-Maximin running riot at the wing. Jamal Lewis has been decent defensively.
Miguel Almiron is heading home early due to him being suspended for Paraguay’s next game, so he will be fully rested to be in this Newcastle team v Chelsea.
