Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Newcastle United

Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League encounter at Newcastle United.

Chelsea return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon when they make the trip to St James' Park to face Newcastle United.

The Blues enjoyed their best week under Mauricio Pochettino to date before the international break as they collected four points from matches against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.

As a result, Chelsea now sit in 10th position in the top-flight standings, four points adrift of their upcoming hosts who they will regard as a direct rival for European qualification.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their visit to the North East.
