Chelsea predicted line up for Saturday clash vs Newcastle.
GK: Asmir Begovic
Number one in the absence of the injured Thibaut Courtois, Asmir Begovic will need a big game against Chelsea’s bogey side Newcastle this weekend.
DR: Branislav Ivanovic
Despite a rocky start, Branislav Ivanovic looks set to keep his place in the Chelsea team after putting in an improved display in the win over Arsenal last week.
DL: Cesar Azpilicueta
Although Baba Rahman played in midweek, the young Ghanian should make way for established first choice Cesar Azpilicueta at left-back.
