Newcastle United Team News
Newcastle will welcome Jonjo Shelvey back after serving a ban in the draw with Palace, but injuries have kept Martin Dubravka, Freddie Woodman, and Paul Dummett out.
Jones gave Ryan Fraser a surprising start in his first match in charge, but he was substituted by Miguel Almiron after 66 minutes at Selhurst Park, a change that may happen right away here.
Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin are attempting to terrorise the Chelsea defence up top, and Joe Willock is lobbying for his selection over Sean Longstaff.
Chelsea Team News
Chelsea’s treatment room is suddenly filling up again, with Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner both anticipated to be unavailable, with Christian Pulisic also out following a setback in his recuperation.
Tuchel is optimistic that Andreas Christensen (tooth), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (hip), Cesar Azpilicueta (shoulder), and N’Golo Kante (muscle) would be able to overcome their injuries in time for this match.
With Lukaku and Werner out, Havertz should continue to be the focal point of the Blues’ attack, while Mateo Kovacic’s outstanding performance against the Canaries will not be enough to keep him in the starting lineup after a hamstring issue in training.
Newcastle United XI:
Darlow; Krafth, Lascelles, Clark; Manquillo, Hayden, Willock, Almiron, Ritchie; Wilson, Saint-Maximin
Mendy; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Silva; James, Jorginho, Kante, Chilwell; Mount, Hudson-Odoi; Havertz
