Newcastle United will face Chelsea at St James’ Park stadium in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, on October 30, 2021, at 14:00 UTC.

When Chelsea travels to Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon, they will be looking to maintain their lead in the Premier League table.

Last Saturday, Thomas Tuchel’s team thrashed Norwich City with seven unanswered goals, while the Magpies’ post-Steve Bruce era began with a draw against Crystal Palace.

The termination of Steve Bruce contract signaled the new owners’ arrival at Newcastle United last week, but with the Magpies still unable to make ripples in the transfer market, results on the field have remained disappointing.

Newcastle are one of three Premier League teams without a win this season, with Graeme Jones in interim command as whispers swirl over Paulo Fonseca’s alleged imminent hiring. As a result, they are currently 19th in the table.

Chelsea’s reputation as a defensive side under Tuchel has been firmly demolished following recent performances, with the Blues marching to a 7-0 win over basement side Norwich in front of the Stamford Bridge faithful in gameweek nine.

Mason Mount scored three goals, while Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Calle Hudson-Odoi, and Max Aarons’ own goal completed the rout in London, but Chelsea’s performance in the EFL Cup against Southampton was a far cry from their thrashing of the Canaries.

Both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner are expected to miss out, while Christian Pulisic is still out following a setback in his recovery.

On a more positive note, Tuchel believes Andreas Christensen (tooth), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (hip), Cesar Azpilicueta (shoulder), and N’Golo Kante (muscle) will be able to recover in time for this match.

With Lukaku and Werner out, Havertz should continue to be the focal point of the Blues’ attack, while Mateo Kovacic’s stellar performance against the Canaries will not see him retain his place after suffering a hamstring injury in training.

Newcastle will welcome back Jonjo Shelvey, who served a suspension in the draw with Palace, but Martin Dubravka, Freddie Woodman, and Paul Dummett are all out with injuries.

Ryan Fraser was given a surprise start in Jones’ first match as manager, but he was replaced by Miguel Almiron 66 minutes in at Selhurst Park, a change that could happen from the start here.
