Chelsea will be craving to secure nothing short of three points when they visit St.James Park for their 13th Premier League outing against Newcastle United.

The Blues team enters the match off their remarkable 4-4 draw against Manchester City, which left with impressive stats against big teams this season.

Team News

Mauricio Pochettino's side will go into the game without the services of Ben Chilwell, who is nursing a harm-string injury. Wesley Fofana and Carney Chukwuemeka are also set to miss the game.

Nevertheless, there is a huge boost for The Blues as Reece James, who picked a knock against Manchester City, is expected to return and lead the team against the Baggies. Christopher Nkunku, Levi Colwill, Conor Gallagher, and Malo Gusto are also possible returns ahead of the fixture, per Evening Standard.

Possible Lineup

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Goalkeeper: Sanchez

Defenders: Cucurella, Silva, Disasi, James

Defensive midfield: Caicedo, Ugochukwu

Attacking midfield: Mudryk, Palmer, Sterling

James, who is expected to return, could start in the right back ahead of Gusto. Lesley Ugochukwu could also be deployed in the defensive midfield ahead of Fernandez, who performed poorly in the last game.

The trio of Mudryk, Palmer, and Sterling are also antibiotics to occupy the attacking midfield. Nicholas Jackson could also lead the attack again and continue his hunt for more goals.
