Chelsea travel to Newcastle tomorrow evening, with manager Frank Lampard hoping to build on the comfortable 3-0 win over Burnley last time out.
The Blues boss handed Andreas Christensen a rare start in the league last Saturday but the Danish international could be benched in favour of Kurt Zouma this weekend. Reece James put in an excellent performance versus the Clarets so he is expected to keep his place, with captain Cesar Azpilcueta once again playing at left-back.
In midfield, N’Golo Kante could be available after missing the game last week due to a tight hamstring. The Frenchman could replace Ross Barkley, with Mason Mount and Jorginho likely to keep their places.
After impressing against Burnley, Callum Hudson-Odoi is expected to retain his starting spot, with Christian Pulisic still out with a groin injury. Willian and Tammy Abraham are also set to start.
Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Newcastle:
Kepa, James, Rudiger, Zouma, Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Mount, Hudson-Odoi, Abraham, Willian
