Newcastle vs Chelsea – Team News

Chelsea face Newcastle at Stamford Bridge in just under an hour, and the teams are in!

The busy international fortnight has meant an enforced change for Frank Lampard as he looks to keep his team fit and fighting their way up the Premier League table.

Thiago Silva drops out after a long trip to South America to play for Brazil, and he is replaced by Antonio Rudiger at the back. That’s a blow, but Ben Chilwell is fit to play on the left flank despite coming off hurt for England in midweek. That’s a bonus.

The rest of the team takes a familiar shape, with Mateo Kovacic preferred to Jorginho in midfield, but everything else looking like it did before the break.

Some of these guys are going to be exhausted – let’s hope we can get the job done without any serious injury problems.

Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Newcastle (kick off at 12:30 pm GMT)
