Chelsea strong lineup to face Newcastle

 Chelsea is set to visit St James' Park for their upcoming Premier League fixture against Newcastle United. Despite their resurgence in form, the Blues find themselves in the mid-table and aim to secure three points against The Magpies, inching closer to a Champions League qualification position before Christmas.

In terms of strategy, Mauricio Pochettino is likely to stick with the effective 4-2-3-1 lineup used in the previous game against Manchester City due to the impressive player performance. However, adjustments are anticipated in the defensive lineup following the team's conceding of goals. The potential Chelsea lineup for the Newcastle game could be as follows:

Goalkeeper: Sanchez

Defense: Gusto, Badiashile, Silva, Cucurella

Defensive Midfield: Ugochukwu, Caicedo

Attacking Midfield: Gallagher, Palmer, Sterling

Forward: Jackson

Despite costly mistakes, Sanchez is expected to maintain his position as Chelsea's goalkeeper. In the defensive lineup, Gusto might start ahead of James, and Badiashile could replace Disasi. Lesley Ugochukwu is a potential starter for the Newcastle United match, providing Fernandez with a needed break.

Cole Palmer could be positioned in the No.10 role, supporting the in-form Nicholas Jackson, who found the net in the last game. The tactical choices reflect Chelsea's strategic approach to secure a crucial victory in the upcoming fixture.
