Chelsea will be looking to maintain their winning start to the new season when they take on Newcastle United at St James’ Park this afternoon.
Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has handed Eden Hazard his first start of the new season as the Belgian international replaces Willian in attack with Pedro keeping his place having scored in his last two games.
Summer signing Mateo Kovacic also comes in to the side to make his full debut alongside N’Golo Kante and Jorginho in midfield with Ross Barkley dropping to the bench. Alvaro Morata keeps his place up front after scoring against Arsenal last time out.
Sarri goes with the same back four that have started the last two matches with Cesar Azpolicueta joined by David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso in defence.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Dubravka, Yedlin, Clark, Fernandez, Schar, Dummett, Murphy, Diame, Ki, Ritchie, Rondon.
Subs: Darlow, Sterry, Longstaff, Atsu, Muto, Perez, Joselu
Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Pedro, Hazard, Morata.
Subs: Caballero, Christensen, Zappacosta, Loftus-Cheek, Barkley, Willian, Giroud.
