Chelsea could be set to benefit from a Newcastle injury crisis at right-back.

The Blues visit St James’ Park tomorrow afternoon following two wins out of two in the Premier League. It will not be straightforward, however, not one of the current crop of Chelsea players have won at Newcastle with the Blues.

The players will be well aware of the problems Newcastle have posed to us in recent seasons. Maurizio Sarri will also be accustomed to the tactical nous his Napoli predecessor Rafa Benitez possesses.

Ultimately, fine margins can determine these contests, and fortune may be favouring the visitors. Physio Room report that both Javier Manquillo and DeAndre Yedlin have been struggling with respective injury problems.

Though either, or both, may be fit to feature, they’ll be coming up against Eden Hazard, who is now match-fit and ready to compete from the beginning. His eyes will light up at the sight of either of them struggling up against him!
