Chelsea vs Newcastle Match Preview and Team News

Chelsea and Newcastle United will turn to the League Cup where the former will host the quarter-final showdown. Chelsea beat Blackburn to progress to this round, while Newcastle edged past Manchester United. Chelsea won even seven consecutive matches in the League Cup at Stamford Bridge and will therefore be sure to reach the semi-finals. Mauricio Pochettino’s men beat Sheffield United 2-0 in the Premier League to end their two-game losing streak. Moises Caicedo is a big signing, he arrived from Brighton for a record 115 million, and a lot is expected of him in the Chelsea shirt. Carney Chukwuemeka plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opponent’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Conor Gallagher is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him. Ben Chilwell (Hamstring injury), Carney Chukwuemeka (Knee injury), Noni Madueke (unknown injury), Reece James (Hamstring injury), Trevoh Chalobah (Thigh problems), Lesley Ugochukwu (unknown injury), Marc Cucurella (Ankle problems), Roméo Lavia (Fitness), Wesley Fofana (cruciate ligament tear) and Robert Sánchez (muscular problems) won’t be able to feature for Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino.


Newcastle United are also coming off a win this weekend. Eddie Howe’s men ended a three-game slump with a convincing 3-0 win against Fulham in the league. Having eliminated both Manchester clubs in their run up to this round, the Magpies will be more than a challenge for Chelsea. They also beat their future hosts 4-1 in their league encounter in November. Newcastle, however, have not won at Stamford Bridge since 2012 and have lost 10 of their 11 matches since this period. Sean Longstaff plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Anthony Gordon plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable. Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe currently has to contend with reduced team options. Fabian Schär (Strain in the thigh and gluteal muscles), Elliot Anderson (Back injury), Joe Willock (Achilles tendon problems), Matt Targett (Hamstring injury), Nick Pope (Shoulder injury), Harvey Barnes (Foot injury), Joelinton ( Hamstring injury) and Jacob Murphy (Shoulder injury) are not able to play.
