NOT

New ewcastle owner has not given the pitch a boost so far and they face the daunting task of facing Premier League leaders Chelsea this afternoon.

Indeed, with Manchester City and Liverpool facing quite difficult matches against Crystal Palace and Brighton respectively, the game at St James’ Park offers a real opportunity for Chelsea to set the tone in the title race.

After resting a number of key players midweek, Tuchel will surely bring out the big guns on Tyneside.

Given the defensive problems Newcastle have endured so far, the kind of performance they have displayed against Norwich could lead to similar results.

Newcastle vs Chelsea are scheduled to kick off at 3pm BST today, Saturday 30 October 2021.

The match will take place at St James’ Park in Newcastle.

Newcastle vs Chelsea team news

Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are back after missing the midweek victory over Southampton.

But Mateo Kovacic will miss the game after sustaining a hamstring injury during training.

“He will be out for a few weeks as he will miss next week for sure and then there will be an international break,” Tuchel said. “It’s a minimum of those weeks.”

With Romelu Lukaku, Christian Pulisic and Timo Werner already absent, more absences would be a blow. N’Golo Kanté is expected to return.

As for Newcastle, led by interim boss Graeme Jones while the club seek a permanent successor to Steve Bruce, Jonjo Shelvey is suspended and Martin Dubravka and Paul Dummett remain on the sidelines. Freddie Woodman is rated 50/50.

Prediction Newcastle vs Chelsea
