Mason Mount is a significant doubt for Chelsea, meaning he may well have played his final match for the club. Reece James is also set to be unavailable after reportedly suffering a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury, and Benoit Badiashile is expected to miss a number of months.

Lewis Hall will keep his place at left-back with Ben Chilwell and Marc Cucurella out, while Thiago Silva will likely return to side after being rested against Manchester United.

Eddie Howe has admitted his Newcastle side are “stretched” with injuries, as he confirmed Joelinton and Javier Manquillo will both miss the trip to Stamford Bridge.

Elliot Anderson and Sean Longstaff are set to continue in midfield, with Callum Wilson expected to lead the line and look to add to his tally on 18 League goals this season.

Chelsea vs Newcastle prediction

The only thing in Chelsea’s favour is the question mark over Newcastle’s motivation, with their top-four spot already sealed.

Even with that it’s difficult to see the Blues picking up a rare win, with the backline alarmingly vulnerable against Manchester United and the same problems up front still clearly there. The Magpies should prove too good.

Newcastle to win, 2-0.
