Chelsea host struggling Newcastle United in the Premier League Fixture.
Chelsea were unlucky as they lost to Tottenham 0-1 in Carabao Cup semi-final. The blues have seen a dip of form and have struggled in front of goal as of late. Sarri’s men have been solid at defence to concede on 16 occasions in their 21 Premier league matches.
The late penalty saved Newcastle United the embarrassment as the scores tied 1-1 at St. James’s Park against Blackburn in FA Cup. Rafa Benitez face squad selection problems with many players out injured and on international duty. The Magpies are currently trying to stay safe from relegation zone.
Arrizabalaga (GK); Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Willian, Hazard, Pedro.
Dubravka(GK); Lascelles, Schar, Lejeune; Yedlin, Diame, Hayden, Dummett; Ritchie, Rondon, Atsu.
My Prediction XI:
Chelsea will try to find tactical tweaks against squad depleted Newcastle United to find their form.
