PHOTOS: Newcastle United stars in training ahead of Chelsea showdown

St James Park

Below are the best pictures from Newcastle United’s training session on Thursday ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash against Chelsea.

Newcastle United have stepped up their preparations for Saturday’s Premier League clash against Chelsea at St. James’ Park.

The Magpies will head into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw with Burnley away from home on Tuesday, having suffered a 1-0 defeat at West Ham United last weekend.

Winning against Chelsea even at home will not be easy for Newcastle, who appear to have turned their season around.

On Thursday, the Newcastle players were caught on camera training hard for Saturday’s match against the unbeaten league leaders.

During the session, two young goalkeepers were spotted: Freddie Woodman and Jak Alnwick. Below are the best pictures from Newcastle’s training on Thursday.
