Newcastle United team news and predicted XI vs Chelsea

Newcastle United Team News

  • Out: Nick Pope, Joelinton, Joe Willock, Emil Krafth, Matt Ritchie, Ryan Fraser, Jamaal Lascelles
  • Doubt: N/A

A return to the Champions League has been a massive boost to the fresh project that continues to gain steam on Tyneside at Newcastle, with Eddie Howe’s Magpies set to compete in Europe’s top club competition for the first time in two decades.

The final clash of the season pits Howe’s troops against a Chelsea side reeling after a 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Manchester United and will look to end what has been an incredibly poor season on a high.

Howe will be without Nick Pope, Joelinton, and Joe Willock as blows to the matchday team, while residual absences through Emil Krafth, Matt Ritchie, Ryan Fraser, and Jamaal Lascelles also are guaranteed. There should be few, if any, shocks to the expected XI.
