Newcastle United vs Chelsea live team sheet

Published Add your comment

Chelsea will be looking to continue their unbeaten start to the Premier League season as they go in search of three points against Newcastle United at St James' Park this lunch time. 

Jose Mourinho has never won a Premier League match away from home against the Magpies, so will be hoping that changes today as the club look to extend their lead to nine points at the top of the Premier League table. 

Chelsea changes 

And, unsurprisingly, main man Diego Costa comes in for the Stamford Bridge outfit as he replaces Didier Drogba in attack. John Obi Mikel, meanwhile, takes the place of the suspended Nemanja Matic in the middle of the park, whist captain John Terry partners Gary Cahill in defence once again. 

Thibaut Courtois keeps his place in goal, with the attacking stars of Eden Hazard, Oscar and Cesc Fabregas all in the starting XI. 

Newcastle attack 

Newcastle, on the other hand, have Papiss Cissé on the bench as the likes of Remy Cabella, Sammy Ameobi and Co. look to provide the attacking threat in front of the home faithful.
