Andreas Christensen and N’Golo Kante return from injury to represent Chelsea against Newcastle United in the Premier League.
The pair were absent for the Blues’ EFL Cup tie with Southampton earlier this week, but they have been thrown back into the team at the first opportunity.
However, Mason Mount is not involved for the league leaders, with Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and Callum Hudson-Odoi making up the front three.
Having played 90 minutes during the last two fixtures, Trevoh Chalobah has dropped down to the substitutes’ bench.
Cesar Azpilicueta also features among the replacements after recovering from a minor fitness issue, and he is joined by Spanish compatriot Saul Niguez.
Newcastle caretaker boss Graeme Jones has stuck with the same XI which started last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace.
Newcastle United: Darlow; Manquillo, Krafth, Lascelles, Clark, Ritchie; Fraser, Hayden, Longstaff, Saint-Maximin; Wilson
Substitutes: Dubravka, Schar, Joelinton, Shelvey, Lewis, Murphy, Almiron, Willock, Gayle
Chelsea: Mendy; Christensen, Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kante, Chilwell; Ziyech, Havertz, Hudson-Odoi
Substitutes: Arrizabalaga, Bettinelli, Alonso, Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Sarr, Saul, Barkley, Loftus-Cheek
