John Carver has made seven changes in his Newcastle team v Chelsea.

Much debate last weekend about why a number of United’s bets players were left out but little doubt that his strongest (fit)possible team is on show today.

newcastle team v chelseaNewcastle line up with;

Krul, Janmaat, Coloccini, Williamson, Dummett, Sissoko, Anita, Colback, Cabella, Gouffran, Perez

With only Dummett, Williamson, Cabella and Anita remaining from the FA Cup shambles.

(Leicester line-up – Alnwick, Santon, Williamson, Dummett, Haidara, Tiote, Anita, Vuckic, Armstrong, Cabella, Riviere)

On the bench at Stamford Bridge Newcastle have;

Woodman, Santon, Haidara, Ameobi, Armstrong, Vuckic, Riviere

Surprise to see Woodman there unless Alnwick is injured presumably, while Sammy Ameobi appears to have returned from injury sooner than expected.
