Chelsea will try to take advantage of Manchester United and Liverpool’s loss of points as they face Newcastle United in the race for the top four in the English Premier League. German manager Thomas Tuchel has come in and brought much-needed stability to Frank Lampard’s departure. The Blues may not have played their best football given the abundance of talent at their disposal, but three wins in their last three speaks a lot about the form they are in. The midfield is a concern for the hosts at the moment when the players are not getting enough opportunities from the central areas. Opponents Newcastle United are seven points better off the drop zone, but must be firm against the tops.

Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz are not fit enough to be part of the match day squad, although Timo Werner and Andreas Christensen may be involved. Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic were brilliant for the hosts in an attacking midfielder role with Jorginho and Matteo Kovacic behind them. N’Golo Kante is currently not in Thomas Tuchel’s basic plan and the French midfielder will have to settle for a place on the bench.

Callum Wilson, Javier Manquillo and Fabian Schar are all out with long-term injuries for Newcastle United, who deliver a heavy blow to the Magpies. Miguel Almiron is the main playmaker on this team and he will have Allan Saint-Maximin and Joelinton as forwards in the final third.
