Team News

Chelsea
Newcastle
  • Ben Chilwell and Levi Colwill have both joined the growing number of players in Chelsea's treatment room.
  • The likes of Wesley Fofana, Reece James and Christopher Nkunku remain ruled out, while Conor Gallagher may require a late fitness test.
  • Kieran Trippier looks set for a spell on the sidelines, while Newcastle will remain without Joelinton, Nick Pope, Callum Wilson and Matt Targett.
  • Lewis Hall is unable to face his parent club.

Prediction

  • Chelsea took the lead at Brentford last weekend, but ultimately salvaged a point late on, after the Bees had come from behind to lead 2-1.
  • Mauricio Pochettino's side head into the weekend in the Premier League's bottom half, and could fall even further away with a poor result here.
  • Newcastle returned to winning ways in the league after two matches without one when they comfortably saw off Wolves last weekend.
  • The Magpies head into the weekend in eighth place, though wins for Brighton and Wolves could see them fall to tenth by the time they play on Monday evening.
