The first game back from an international break, a lunchtime kickoff, at St James’ Park, in the abhorrent third kits — it doesn’t get much more bogey for a bogey fixture than that!

Chelsea were in great form before the break however — four wins in a row, clean sheets in five of the previous six, eleven unbeaten outside of a penalty shootout — so maybe that will help us triumph today.

Here we go!

Newcastle United starting (5-3-2):
Darlow | Lewis, Clark, Lascelles (c), Fernández, Manquillo | Murphy, Longstaff, Hayden | Saint-Maximin, Joelinton

Chelsea starting lineup (4-3-3):
Mendy | Chilwell, Rüdiger, Zouma, James | Kovačić, Kanté (c), Mount | Werner, Abraham, Ziyech
