Chelsea will welcome Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon as they try to secure maximum points at home. The Blues managed to pick up a 3-1 win over Norwich City in midweek which will give them a lot of confidence ahead of this weekend’s league clash at West London. Similarly, the Magpies earned a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Southampton, so they will be quietly confident about taking something away from this game.

Chelsea Vs Newcastle United: Talking Tactics

Thomas Tuchel could set his side up in a 3-4-2-1 formation and could make a few changes to his starting XI for this game. The German head coach will ask his men to dominate possession and engineer enough clear-cut opportunities to win this game.

Eddie Howe is expected to opt for a 4-3-3 formation and will probably make some tweaks to his first team for this league contest at the English capital. The Newcastle boss might ask his players to defend well and try to create some problems for the Chelsea defenders on the counter.

Team News


Callum Hudson-Odoi, Marcos Alonso, Cesar Azpilicueta and Christian Pulisic are all major doubts for this game. Otherwise, Tuchel has no fresh injury concerns this weekend.

Chelsea Predicted XI

Mendy; Christensen, T Silva, Rudiger, Sarr; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Ziyech, Havertz, Mount

Newcastle United

Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin, Bruno Guimaraes, Emil Krafth and Fabian Schar are all significant concerns ahead of this contest at Stamford Bridge. Furthermore, Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson will definitely miss this game due to injuries.

Newcastle United Predicted XI

Dubravka; Manquillo, Schar, Burn, Targett; Willock, Shelvey, Longstaff; Murphy, Wood, Almiron

Key Men


Mason Mount and Kai Havertz will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Blues in the final third. Both Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic will be responsible for controlling the midfield battle and feeding some decent through balls to the front players.

Newcastle United

Chris Wood will be expected to cause a few problems for the Chelsea defenders from set-pieces. Both Fabian Schar and Dan Burn need to be at the top of their game if the Magpies are to come away with a result from West London this weekend.
