Newcastle United vs. Chelsea: Premier League – Match Preview

Newcastle United will look to build on their superb start to the season when they host fellow top four candidates Chelsea on Saturday.

Newcastle sit third in the Premier League approaching the half way campaign after another win last time out, as they thrashed Southampton 4-1.

Chelsea were eliminated from the competition after losing 2-0 away to Manchester City, with both sides fielding rotated teams.

They are four without a win in the league after losing 1-0 at home to league leaders Arsenal, with Gabriel scoring the only goal.

Team news
Callum Wilson is expected to shake off an illness to start here, although Chris Wood will deputise if he doesn’t.

Jacob Murphy will likely keep Allan Saint Maximin on the bench here, with the in-form Miguel Almiron on the opposite flank.

Kepa remains out meaning Edouard Mendy will continue in goal.
