Watch Newcastle United vs Chelsea live match and goal highlight
Welcome to today’s Premier League afternoon fixture between Chelsea and Newcastle united here.
Sitting pretty at the top of the Premier League, one would expect Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel to return to some of his more familiar faces for Saturday’s game away at Newcastle.
While the home side may be in utter disarray on the pitch this season, Tuchel’s rotational options didn’t exactly make a pressing case for more regular minutes during Tuesday night’s win over Southampton in the Carabao Cup.
Chelsea’s 18.3 per cent goals-to-shots ratio is the best by some distance in the Premier League this season. Leicester are second (13.5 per cent) and Liverpool third (13.3 per cent). We last won three in a row on the road while keeping a clean sheet in November 2016.
Chelsea’s reverse at Aston Villa on the final day of last season is our only defeat on the road in 13 away outings in the Premier League since Tuchel took over (nine wins, three draws).
