Newcastle vs Chelsea predicted line-ups, Team news ahead of Premier League fixture

The Premier League returns following the November international break with Newcastle United hosting Chelsea.

Eddie Howe’s team has had a mixed start to the season after qualifying for the Champions League, and suffered a setback against Bournemouth in their previous league match.

Chelsea, on the other hand, would have appreciated the break following two frantic games against Tottenham and Manchester City.

The availability of a few of important players might help Mauricio Pochettino continue on the promising start to his first season at the club.

Team news

Forward Alexander Isak is questionable for the game, according to Newcastle manager Eddie Howe, who said that given Callum Wilson’s absence, he would have to be cautious with the Sweden international. Sven Botman is out with a knee injury, Harvey Barnes is out with a foot ailment, and Lewis Hall is unable to face his parent club.

This game will come a little too soon for Chelsea’s summer arrivals Christopher Nkunku and Romeo Lavia, but both are approaching a comeback from injury. Trevoh Chalobah, Ben Chilwell, Carney Chukwuemeka, and Wesley Fofana have all been ruled out.
