Chelsea vs Newcastle: The home team have an advantage to return to the top 4 if they can scoop out 3 points from the game today
The Blues are on a win streak since their first game’s draw under Thomas Tuchel and will hope to extend this fire unto the game tonight when they face the Magpies.
Timo Werner was mainly instrumental in Chelsea’s last victories and will be hoping to find the back of the net tonight as he aims to end his goal drought if he gets a chance.
The Chelsea vs Newcastle United game has won Blues more point than any other of their fixtures as they look to hold on to another win.
Kai Havertz is a doubt for the game tonight after missing out of Chelsea’s last training as he is yet to recover from an injury.
Speaking on Kai Havertz and Thiago Silva’s absence, Tuchel said; “There are still three training sessions (before Newcastle). It should be okay for Timo to come back, but maybe too close for Kai still and for Thiago.
“For Thiago we are aiming for Southampton [on February 20]. We are trying hard and will see if we make it. For Kai, let’s see if he is out (training) today. It is a very short time – maybe he will be missing this match as well.”
Hudson-Odoi took on the number 10 role in Chelsea’s last Premier League game and is likely to repeat the role as Reece James stared as a right back.
Blues’ possible line up for Chelsea vs Newcastle clash
Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso; Hudson-Odoi, Mount; Abraham.
