STATS: Chelsea have won just twice in five Premier League fixtures (D2, L1) and have dropped seven points from winning positions in their last seven Premier League matches. The Blues have also conceded in their last five league games – their longest streak without a clean sheet under German tactician Thomas Tuchel.

City gaffer Pep Guardiola has made three changes from the side that thrashed Leeds United 7-0 as Joao Cancelo, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus all in the Starting XI while John Stones, Jack Grealish and Phil Foden are all among the substitutes.

Newcastle manager Eddie Howe makes five changes to the side that began the 3-1 loss away to Liverpool at Anfield last Thursday with Ciaran Clark, Joe Willock, Miguel Almiron, Matt Ritchie and Callum Wilson all in the Starting XI, while Allan Saint-Maximin is only good enough to be on the bench.

NEWCASTLE UNITED VS MANCHESTER CITY:

The Blues have made two changes from the side that drew 1-1 with Everton last time out, with N’Golo Kante and Trevoh Chalobah replacing the injured Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Jorginho. Chelsea name just six players on their bench, including midfielder Mateo Kovacic who has been out for 11 games plus two goalkeepers.

Wolves boss Bruno Lage makes three changes to his starting XI, with Mexican striker Raul Jimenez returning from suspension to replace the injured Hwang Hee-chan. Ki-Jana Hoever and Leander Dendoncker both comes in for Nelson Semedo and Francisco Trincao.
