Newcastle United vs Chelsea FC: Lineups and gamethread

Mike Hewitt

Draws are better than losses I guess, but an actual win would be nice

Chelsea head as far north as they can in the Premier League for the first weekend in February as they look to get back to winning ways. Petr Cech and Juan Mata will be available to play, and both have been named in the starting lineup by interim manager Rafa Benitez. Marko Marin, however, has not. Here are the lineups that both teams will be trotting out for Saturday's tie:

Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole, Ramires, Lampard, Oscar, Mata, Bertrand, Ba\

Chelsea Bench: Turnbull, Azpilicueta, Ake, Ferreira, Benayoun, Marin, Torres

Newcastle: Krul, Debuchy, S.Taylor, Coloccini, Santon, Perch, Cabaye, Gouffran, Sissoko, Gutierrez, Cisse

Newcastle Bench: Elliot, Marveaux, Yanga-Mbiwa, Anita, Bigirimana, Obertan, Shola Ameobi

Howard Webb will be refereeing the match.

As always, keep it clean, no linking or directing to illegal streams, and enjoy the game. If things go badly and you are having a meltdown because of it, please just stop commenting as opposed to venting your rage in the comments section of multiple articles here. I'm really getting tired of reading through and moderating that type of thing, and I don't think I'm alone. Thanks, and lets go Blues!
