How should Chelsea line up against Newcastle United after the international break?

Chelsea faced a rather difficult schedule before the November international break, with games in quick succession against Arsenal, Spurs, and Manchester City, and things aren’t getting that much easier as we return from it either, with three of the next four away and bogey-team Brighton coming for a visit in between. And that’s before we get ino the madness of the holiday period!

First up is a trip far north of the wall, to the dizzying latitudes of (not to mention heights of the away section at) St James Park in Newcastle — though we do have pretty good succes at this venue in recent years, and we have the third best away record in the league currently, so ... hey, maybe!

And there may be a massive boost in the presence of Christopher Nkunku, who’s pushing hard to make at least the bench on Saturday. That still seem unlikely, but the effort is unquestionable.

Others are gettin close as well, but we managed to survive the break without significant injury, and neither Levi Colwill nor Malo Gusto (nor Reece James) are are showing any ill-effects from their recent ailments.

Choose wisely.
