The confirmed Newcastle team v Chelsea has just been announced.

Newcastle line up with:

Krul, Janmaat, Coloccini, Mbemba, Mbabu, Colback, Anita, Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Perez, Mitrovic

On the bench:

Elliot, Williamson, Lascelles, Obertan, Thauvin, de Jong, Toney

Chelsea starting 11:

Begovic, Ivanovic, Zouma, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Matic, Fabregas, Pedro, Oscar, Hazard, Remy

Whilst I think Steve McClaren hasn’t exactly inspired, it is hard to see what options from the bench you could have included.

We all know that the likes of Elliot, Williamson and Obertan aren’t up to it.

Toney and Lascelles are nowhere near Premoer League standard at the minute.

Whilst de Jong and Thauvin have been really poor in recent matches.

A big day for Kevin Mbabu, the 20 year old makes his Premier League debut against the Champions!
