Watch Chelsea vs Newcastle Live

No real surprises in the Newcastle United XI, with just two changes from the victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers – and one of them is injury-enforced and expected.

Tino Livramento is a like-for-like replacement as an attacking right-back in place of the injured Kieran Trippier, with the 21-year-old starting against the club where he rose through the academy before departing for Southampton in 2021.

The other alteration sees Miguel Almiron come in for Jacob Murphy on the right wing, with the Paraguayan having been left out of the starting side for the last two games.

Dan Burn captains his boyhood club, while Matt Targett is on the bench and in a matchday squad for the first time since November 1 following a serious hamstring injury.
