Not a single player in Chelsea’s squad has ever won at St. James’ Park while playing for the Blues. That’s rather depressing.
Maurizio Sarri will be hoping to change that tomorrow in order to continue his 100% start to the Premier League season. It won’t be easy, but we have the quality to overcome the Magpies and former manager Rafa Benitez.
Sarri has confirmed that both Eden Hazard and Mateo Kovacic are fit and available to start from the beginning. The Hazard news speaks for itself in terms of significance, but Kovacic’s readiness could prove pivotal with Cesc Fabregas still injured.
We wouldn’t expect wholesale changes from Sarri for this game. Why change a winning team? However, players like the aforementioned duo are impossible to ignore. When fit, they’re the first names on the teamsheet.
We believe that both of them will start on Sunday, with our full starting eleven looking something like this. What do you think, Blues? Let us know in the comments.
(4-3-3) Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, David Luiz, Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Pedro, Hazard, Morata
