Predicted XI: Chelsea vs Newcastle (23/24)

Share this article:

Less than 24 hours to go… Predicting Pochettino’s team should be easy given the amount of players that have been ruled out for Monday’s clash.

If you need a reminder the blues will be without; James, Fofana, Lavia, Badiashile, Chukwuemeka, Chilwell, Colwill, Nkunku, Gallagher and Ugochukwu.

Pochettino has both goalkeepers available for selection but I expect Petrovic will keep his spot, it would be a massive kick in the teeth if he were to lose his spot to Robert Sanchez.

With Chilwell injured and Cucurella just retuning from injury it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Gusto deployed at left back with either Chalobah or Disasi utilised at right back. Following Colwill’s injury I expect to see Thiago Silva return to the XI.

The midfield pairing will likely be Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo once again given the options are thin. Cole Palmer is likely to be used ahead of the midfield pairing. The front three is likely to be Mudryk, Jackson and Sterling but Madueke could easily get the go ahead.

I fully expect Pochettino to ditch the back five given the latest amount of injuries, just another headache for Pochettino.

Predicted XI: Petrovic, Chalobah, Disasi, Thiago Silva, Gusto, Enzo, Caicedo, Palmer, Sterling, Jackson, Mudryk.
