    Premier League LIVE! – Chelsea vs Newcastle

    Probable Lineups:

    Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech, Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Matic, Willian, Oscar, Hazard, Eto’o

    Buoyed from their 1-0 win over Manchester City at the Etihad, Chelsea will be extremely confident of bagging the three points against a struggling Newcastle side.  Jose’ Mourinho left out Oscar and played a more defensive midfield consisting of David Luiz and Namanja Matic, but he will surely opt for the Brazilian in this tie.  Fernando Torres is also nearing a return from injury, but ‘The Special One’ will field Samuel Eto’o up front.

    Newcastle United (4-4-1-1): Krul, Debuchy, S Taylor, Williamson, Santon, Ben Arfa, Tiote’, Anita, Sam Amoebi, Sissoko, Shola Ameobi

    The loss of  Yohan Cabaye coinciding with the injury to top-scorer Loic Remy has caused the Toon Army to lose their cutting edge in attack.  Failing to sign a replacement has seen the side unable to score a goal in their last two games, so expect a dogged approach similar to West Ham’s draw at the Bridge last week.

    Remember this?

    A fan’s view of Tiote’s amazing strike to put Newcastle 3-2 up against Chelsea last year.

    He may not have received bursts of points lately, but the Belgian showed his class against Manchester City and will be expected to produce at the Bridge.
