OFFICIAL: Chelsea vs Newcastle – Kepa starts tonight
Chelsea face Newcastle at Stamford Bridge in just under an hour, and the teams are in!
The stunning news is that Kepa keeps his place in goal, presumably having impressed in the FA Cup game he played at the weekend. It’s pretty astonishing to see him given yet another first team chance.
The rest of the team sees Tammy Abraham lead the line with Timo Werner and Mason Mount as the “inside 10s” behind him.
Marcos Alonso and CHO look to be playing at wing back, with Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger and Cesar Azpilicueta at centre back.
A Jovacic midfield completes the XI. We’re fascinated to see how these changes go down on social media. Chelsea can make a real impression on the league tonight. We look forward to seeing what they can do.
