Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel will be aiming to keep the Blues bandwagon rolling when they play host to Newcastle on Monday night.

Tuchel is unbeaten so far in his new role and a win in this one will his team back inside the Top Four.

Chelsea conceded their first goal under the German against Sheffield United last weekend, but despite that, he’s expected to keep faith with Andreas Christensen with Thiago Silva still sidelined.

Timo Werner has passed a late fitness check and should start up front, with N’Golo Kante in line to replace Mateo Kovacic in midfield.

As for the visitors, Steve Bruce’s injury worries seem to be creeping back up after the news that star man Callum Wilson is out for a month.

Joelinton looks the most likely to replace him at the Bridge, with Emil Krafth and Ciaran Clark coming back into the team for Javi Manquillo and Jeff Hendrick.

And it’ll be a late one to wrap this round of fixtures with an 8pm start on Monday night at Stamford Bridge.
