The Blues Chelsea FC will be playing in the Premier League Matchday three against Rafael Benitez and Newcastle United in a mission to reclaim the top of the Premier League table and take advantage of Manchester City’s draw against Brighton.
When and where is the match?
When: The match will be on Sunday, August 26 at 4:00 PM BST.
Where: St James Park Stadium (Away)
Who will play?
Mauricio Sarri isn’t expected to make a log of changes to the starting Xl against Newcastle United where the only change may be the Belgian international forward, Eden Hazard, starting instead of being benched like the previous two games.
We predict the starting Xl to be as follows:
Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga
Defenders: Marcos Alonso, Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, and Cesar Azpilicueta (Captain)
Midfielders: Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, and Ross Barkley.
Forward: Eden Hazard, Alvaro Morata, and Pedro.
Newcastle United will be fighting to win any point against Chelsea. However, it won’t be an easy match for both sides. We expect a 2-1 win for Chelsea.
Chelsea have drawn or lost in almost 60% of the matches against Newcastle United.
