CHELSEA vs NEWCASTLE

Alvaro Morata is an injury doubt after he missed Tuesday's Carabao Cup semi-final first leg with Tottenham with a minor hamstring problem. Ruben Loftus-Cheek (back) is out and Cesc Fabregas will not be considered ahead of his likely move to Monaco.

Newcastle defenders Federico Fernandez (hip) and Ciaran Clark (ankle) will both return to contention to give boss Rafael Benitez more options at the back, but Jonjo Shelvey (thigh) will play no part and fellow defender Kenedy is not eligible to face his parent club. Paul Dummett (hamstring) and Karl Darlow (elbow) are still out.

Last season: Newcastle 3 Chelsea 0, Chelsea 3 Newcastle 1
