Chelsea were highly impressive in the midweek fixture against Walsall and will face Newcastle United next away from home on Saturday.
After a torrid start to the new season, the Blues have won three games in a row and should be confident against the Magpies who are currently in the relegation zone.
As far as Chelsea’s team news is concerned, more than a few first team players were rested against Walsall and it is likely that Mourinho will bring six key players back into the starting XI for the PL game.
Playmakers like Eden Hazard, Pedro Rodriguez and Oscar should return to the starting XI vs Newcastle United. The trio will probably start behind Loic Remy in the absence of suspended Spanish striker Diego Costa.
Matic and Fabregas should return to form a partnership in the midfield again. Last but not the least, Azpilicueta will likely replace Baba Rahman in the starting lineup.
Here is Chelsea’s probable starting XI vs Newcastle.
