[Teams] Newcastle vs Chelsea: Confirmed Line-ups
Chelsea take on Newcastle at St James’ Park this afternoon looking to get back to winning ways after another disappointing week for Rafa Benitez.
The Blues surrendered a 2-goal lead against Reading on Wednesday to draw 2-2 and all but end their slim title hopes for this season. Interim boss Rafa Benitez has come under fire once again so will be looking for a positive response from his players today.
The Spaniard has decided to recall striker Demba Ba in place of Fernando Torres while captain John Terry also starts alongside Gary Cahill at the back. Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game:
Krul; Debuchy, S.Taylor, Coloccini, Santon; Perch, Cabaye; Gouffran, Sissoko, Gutierrez; Cisse
Subs: Elliot, Yanga-Mbiwa, Bigirimana, Anita, Marveaux, Obertan, Shola Ameobi
Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole; Ramires, Lampard; Oscar, Mata, Bertrand; Ba.
Subs: Turnbull, Ferreira, Azpilicueta, Ake, Benayoun, Marin, Torres.
