The Maurizio Sarri era at Chelsea has gotten off to a brilliant start, with two wins from two and against former Blues manager Rafael Benitez, the West Londoners will look to make it three out of three.

Benitez has done a remarkable job with the Magpies considering the circumstances and his well-drilled side will look to stymie their fancied opponents as long as they can before nicking something on a counter or a free-kick.

Newcastle United: Dubravka, Yedlin, Fernandez, Schar, Clark, Dummen, Murphy, Ki, Diane, Richie and Rondon.

Chelsea: Kepa, Alonso, Luiz, Rudiger, Azpilicueta, Kovacic, Jorginho, Kante, Hazard, Morata and Pedro.
