Chelsea vs Newcastle United: EPL Match Preview: 

Chelsea have been the main story in the football world this week, as Roman Abramovich has faced sanctions due to the conflict in Eastern Europe. They welcome Newcastle United to Stamford Bridge this weekend. It will be one of the final matches with a full Stamford Bridge for a while, as tickets have already been sold for the fixture. It should be a great match to watch for the neutral as the visitors are in great form. Relegation know feels like a distant worry for Eddie Howe, as they have climbed up the table.

For the Blues, there is relatively little left to play for in the Premier League. They will be traveling to Lille during the week and Thomas Tuchel could have one eye on that fixture. Although Chelsea do have a two-goal lead in the Champions League, they won't want to take any chances in that game and there could be a decision to rest key players for the trip to France. The focus from the media will be on the off-field matters, but the team will be fully focused on the matches ahead. It will be interesting to see what the mood of the stadium is like on Sunday.

It has been an incredible turnaround from Newcastle United this season. At Christmas, it looked like it would be incredibly difficult to stay up, even if signings were made in January. They had only won one match and were anchored in the relegation zone. However, it has been quite some recovery in 2022. Newcastle have yet to taste defeat in the Premier League this calendar year and they will go to Stamford Bridge with every intention of winning the game. The confidence will be sky high at St James' Park and they will be a dangerous opponent for Chelsea.

Team News:

Chelsea FC:

Chelsea will again definitely be missing Ben Chilwell and Reece James, while Christian Pulisic, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Marcos Alonso remain doubts due to illness. Azpilicueta had to be replaced at the interval against Norwich and will not be risked unless he is 100%, so Andreas Christensen could potentially start at right-back here.

Malang Sarr could also be introduced at left-back if Alonso does not recover in time, while N'Golo Kante, Antonio Rudiger, and Hakim Ziyech should also be back in the starting side. Lukaku is unlikely to earn a role in the first XI, though, with Kai Havertz and Mason Mount both expected to start following their goals against Norwich last time out.

Newcastle United:

As for Newcastle, Jamal Lewis, Callum Wilson, Kieran Trippier and Isaac Hayden are all definitely out, but Bruno Guimaraes, Allan Saint-Maximin, and Joelinton should all be passed fit. Federico Fernandez and Emil Krafth are also pushing to be involved, while Fabian Schar should feature despite a troublesome groin problem.

Howe could decide against starting Guimaraes, with Joelinton set to return to midfield, while Saint-Maximin will feature on the right of the attack if he recovers from illness. Javi Manquilo is also in line to start at right-back if Krath fails a late fitness test, with the latter being forced off in the final stages of the clash with Southampton.

Chelsea vs Newcastle United: Possible Line-ups:

Chelsea XI: Mendy; Christensen, T Silva, Rudiger, Sarr; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Ziyech, Havertz, Mount.

Newcastle United XI: Dubravka; Manquillo, Schar, Burn, Targett; Willock, Shelvey, Joelinton; Saint-Maximin, Wood, Murphy
