Chelsea will be looking to take advantage of Manchester United and Liverpool dropping points when they take on Newcastle United as the race for top four hots up in the English Premier League. German manager Thomas Tuchel has come in and brought much-needed stability to the club post Frank Lampard’s exit. The Blues may have not played their best football considering the plethora of talent they have at their disposal but three wins in their last three does speak a lot about the kind of form they are in. Midfield is an area of concern for the hosts at the moment with the players not carving out enough chances from the central areas. Opponents Newcastle United are seven points better off the drop zone but need to be more resolute against top sides.

Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz are not fit enough to be part of the matchday squad although the likes of Timo Werner and Andreas Christensen might feature. Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic have been brilliant for the hosts in an attacking midfielder role with Jorginho and Matteo Kovacic slotting in behind them. N’Golo Kante is currently not in Thomas Tuchel’s starting eleven plan and the French midfielder will have to content himself with a place on the bench.
