Against Tottenham last Tuesday, Chelsea were held scoreless in a 1-0 loss by playing well in every part of the pitch but the final third.

But today against Newcastle, a side that we have beaten with a two-goal difference every time we meet at Stamford Bridge since August 2012, there is a good chance we can change that for the better.

Let’s do this!

Chelsea starting lineup (4-3-3):

Arrizabalaga | Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Rüdiger, Alonso | Kanté, Jorginho, Kovacic | Willian, Hazard, Pedro

Substitutes from: Caballero, Christensen, Emerson, Ampadu, Barkley, Hudson-Odoi, Giroud

Newcastle United starting lineup (5-4-1):

Dubravka | Yedlin, Lascelles, Lejeune, Clark, Ritchie | Pérez, Hayden, Longstaff, Atsu | Rondón

Substitutes from: Woodman, Sterry, Manquillo, Fernández, Schär, Murphy, Joselu

Date / Time: Saturday, January 12, 2019, 17:30 GMT; 12:30pm EST; 11pm IST
Venue: Stamford Bridge, SW6
