Newcastle United vs Chelsea live stream and match preview
Looking for a Newcastle United vs Chelsea live stream? We've got you covered.
The Magpies are the Premier League's form team heading into the weekend. No team in the division has a better record over the last six rounds of fixtures, which have seen Newcastle (opens in new tab) collect 16 points from a possible 18.
Eddie Howe's side, who have only lost one match all season, have risen up to third place in the table, fuelling hope that they could be ready to mount a push for Champions League qualification this term. That would be a fantastic achievement for a team that was rooted to the foot of the table at the equivalent stage of the 2021/22 campaign.
Howe has certainly been helped by the fact Newcastle have spent upwards of £200m in the last two transfer windows, but he has nevertheless done a superb job since replacing Steve Bruce. It is especially notable that Newcastle have the joint-best defensive record in the Premier League this season.
Graham Potter has found things harder going at Chelsea (opens in new tab) of late, with the Blues having dropped down to seventh spot in the standings after a run of four games without a win. Chelsea were also beaten in midweek, going down 2-0 to Manchester City (opens in new tab) in the third round of the Carabao Cup.
Potter is a manager who will need time to get his ideas across. It will be intriguing to see whether he gets it at Chelsea, one of the most trigger-happy clubs in the Premier League over the last 20 years.
Newcastle will have to make do without Alex Isak, Matt Ritchie, Paul Dummett and Emil Krafth. Meanwhile, Callum Wilson is only on the bench following a bout of illness as Chris Wood starts against Chelsea and Joelinton returns after missing last weekend's 4-1 win over Southampton through suspension.
Chelsea will be unable to call upon the services of Ben Chilwell, N'Golo Kante, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Wesley Fofana and Reece James.
Graham Potter makes four changes from the midweek Carabao Cup defeat in Manchester, with Mason Mount, Conor Gallagher, Cesar Azpilicueta and Jorginho all back in the XI.
At left wing-back, 18-year-old Lewis Hall stays in the side. Raheem Sterling has been left out of the matchday squad.

Kick-off and channel
Kick-off is at 5.30pm GMT on Saturday 12 November and the match is being shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football (opens in new tab) in the UK. See below for international broadcast options.
Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
