Possible Chelsea Starting Line-Up Against Newcastle


Fresh from their brilliant 1-0 win against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in the last match, the Blues will look to maintain the juggernaut, as they face Newcastle United on Saturday at the Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are impressive at home as always, having not suffered a defeat thus far in the league, but Jose Mourinho would be looking to avoid successive home draws, having been held 0-0 by West Ham at the Bridge in the last home outing.


In the last match, Mourinho opted for a three-man midfield but expect Mourinho to deploy 4-2-3-1 formation against the Magpies on Saturday, with Oscar expected to start again in his customary no 10 role.

January signing Nemanja Matic was outstanding in the last match and the Serbian would be looking to retain his place in the side. Also, another new signing Mohamed Salah could make his debut on Saturday, in place of Brazilian Willian.

Fernando Torres has returned to full training but expect the Spaniard to start from the bench. Samuel Eto’o has been in fine touch and should lead the line on Saturday.

Prediction: 2-0; Chelsea are undefeated in their last 21 home matches in the Premier League. Expect the Blues to win comfortably at home.
