Newcastle vs Chelsea: Team News, Injury Update and Possible Lineup.

An important Premier League matchup between Chelsea and in-form Newcastle will take place before the World Cup break.

With a win on Saturday, Eddie Howe’s team would have put down yet another significant marker in the fight for qualifying.

After ending Ralph Hasenhuttl’s stint at last weekend with five straight victories in the Premier League, Newcastle is currently in third place and is only seven points behind the leader. They also defeated Crystal Palace on penalties in the Carabao Cup.

The Magpies have lost only once all season and will be brimming with confidence for the visit of a Chelsea side that has notably stalled after initial progress under Graham Potter, dropping to seventh and six points behind their next opponents – albeit with a game in hand – after a winless four-match league run that includes defeats by Brighton and Arsenal.

The Blues showed some promising indications against Manchester City in the cup midweek, but another loss added to the sense of despair that threatens to overtake Potter’s early tenure. They will be keen to infuse some hope before the World Cup break.

  • Newcastle vs Chelsea team news:

Potter is optimistic that Jorginho will return to Chelsea following a foot injury, but Kepa Arrizabalaga is still out with a foot injury and was not selected for Spain’s World Cup roster.

Ben Chilwell, Wesley Fofana, Reece James, N’Golo Kante, and Carney Chukwuemeka are all still out.

Newcastle will make a late decision on striker Callum Wilson, who has been training apart from his teammates after recuperating from sickness.

Ryan Fraser is doubtful due to a calf injury, while Alexander Isak, Matt Ritchie, Emil Krafth, and Paul Dummett are all in the treatment room.

  • Newcastle vs Chelsea prediction

This is an exciting last World Cup match as Newcastle tries to send a clear message that they are legitimate top-four candidates.

Only Manchester City and Arsenal have scored goals this season than Howe’s team, and confidence is sky-high following such a stunning winning streak.

The last thing Potter would have wanted in the current situation is a trip to St James’ Park as Chelsea frantically tries to enter the World Cup break on a positive note.

They were outplayed by Brighton, outclassed by Arsenal, and left regretting squandered opportunities against City. Here, significant reforms are required to prevent another depressing defeat.

In an exciting match, we’re gambling for a spirit. 2-3. Chelsea to win
