Chelsea defeated Swansea City on Wedndesday night to remain third in the Barclays Premie League. Next up, the Blues will collide against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Conte’s team are now fewer than 11 points behind league leaders Manchester City and the reigning PL champions cannot afford to drop more points if they are to have any chance of retaining the title.
Chelsea do not have any suspensions concerns and as far as the injuries are concerned, Batshuayi is still out.
Conte opted to bench Hazard and Azpilicueta for the midweek contest and we can expect the quality duo to return to the starting XI tomorrow.
Brazilian international Willian has been impressive lately and he should get the nod to start with Hazard and Morata in the attack vs the Magpies.
Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso should start in the wing-back positions and the likes of Fabregas and Kante should start in the central midfield.
Here is Chelsea’s strongest possible 3-4-3 XI vs Newcastle United.
