Confirmed: Newcastle United v Chelsea lineups

Newcastle Utd - Gate

Newcastle United will face Chelsea at St. James’ Park in the Premier League this evening…

Chelsea will be looking to maintain their winning run when they take on Newcastle United away from home in the Premier League this evening.

The Blues have won their last three competitive games and will be favourites to pick up all three points against Newcastle at St. James’ Park.

Jose Mourinho’s side will head into this evening’s encounter on the back of a 4-1 victory over Walsall away from home in the third round of the League Cup.

Chelsea defeated London rivals Arsenal 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League last weekend.

Meanwhile, Newcastle find themselves in the Premier League relegation zone at the moment and are struggling for form at the moment.

It promises to be an exciting game at St. James’ Park, and this is how Newcastle and Chelsea will line up for the match:

Newcastle United XI: Krul; Janmaat, Mbemba, Coloccini (c), Mbabu; Sissoko, Anita, Colback, Wijnaldum; Perez, Mitrovic
