Chelsea will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they face Newcastle United at St James’ Park today.
The Blues are winless in the last four league matches, but a victory today would take them within three points off the top four.
Kalidou Koulibaly had a poor outing against Manchester City in the League Cup third round with two notable errors and should be dropped to the bench once more.
The former Arsenal captain was an unused substitute in midweek following a poor showing against the Gunners. The Gabon star will be keen to prove a point versus the Magpies on the road.
Predicted Chelsea line-up (4-2-3-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Silva, Cucurella; Kovacic, Jorginho; Havertz, Mount, Sterling; Aubameyang.
