Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Newcastle United

Chelsea got off to a rough start this season, but they seem to be progressing along and finding their stride now. Things should only get better, at least in theory, with stellar young forward Callum Hudson-Odoi now being fully re-integrated into the mix.

He returned from the serious knee injury he suffered in April just before the international break, and he scored twice for the England U21s this week. He’s in line for a start on Saturday when the Blues host Newcastle United.

Also, central defender Antonio Rudiger is set to feature for the first time since September 14th.
