Team news

There were question marks over whether Joelinton and Allan Saint-Maximin would be fit to face Chelsea, however it looks likely that one of the two will feature.

ASM didn’t travel down south as of Thursday and is unlikely to be fit for tomorrow’s match, while it was confirmed that Joelinton is with the squad in the capital.

Meanwhile Emile Krafth and Federico Fernandez could also miss out.

Chelsea will be without Reece James once again, while Christian Pulisic, Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso are doubts.

What are the managers saying?

Newcastle United boss, Eddie Howe, said: “Your preparation is key.

“We’ve tried to be very consistent with how we prepare.

“I think that’s helped us so we will be the same regardless of the opposition. There are certain things we need to do well against any opponent. I don’t think that really changes.

“We will have our way of preparing. We will do that to the best of our ability and hopefully we produce a good performance.

“These games aren’t a free hit. I’ve learnt historically that you need to pick up points against every type of team so we will endeavour to do our best to do that.”

Ahead of the game, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said: “It will be difficult one because Newcastle is very, very strong.

“It’s a different Newcastle and they produce a lot of results, so I’m expecting a very tough game.

“At the moment, we try to have the focus right and the attitude right. The guys do this in a very impressive way and we need this on Sunday.”
