Chelsea vs Newcastle – Team News

Chelsea face Newcastle at Stamford Bridge in just under an hour, and the teams are in!

Mauricio Pochettino has had a long break since the last game, but also knows he’s back to breaking point with most of his squad, with so many injuries in defence.

Marc Cucurella comes back for his first appearance since his ankle injury, and that’s surely a risk given how little he’s played.

He plays on the left as Chelsea return to a back four, with Malo Gusto on the right and Axel Disasi and Trevoh Chalobah in the middle.

Conor Gallagher was ill last week and missed a lot of training, but he’s fit enough to play tonight, in our usual midifeld trio with Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez.

The front 3 is also as you’d expect – Nicolas Jackson, Cole Palmer and Raheem Sterling get the nod.

Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Newcastle (kick off at 20:00 GMT)
