Chelsea will be looking to extend their winning streak in the Premier League when they face Newcastle United on the road tonight.
The Blues have won their previous three league games and they can break into the top four with either a draw or win at St James’ Park.
Edouard Mendy was given a breather in the FA Cup fifth round. He is expected to return between the sticks tonight as he is the undisputed goalkeeper for the Premier League.
Reece James made the difference in the slender 1-0 win over Barnsley where he provided an assist coming off the bench. He is expected to start at right wing-back with Marcos Alonso on the opposite end.
N’Golo Kante made his first start since his injury return in midweek. He is likely to keep his place. Billy Gilmour will drop to the bench to be replaced with Jorginho.
Tammy Abraham should lead the line after his standout display at Oakwell. The England international scored the winning goal and came up with a superb goalline clearance as well.
