Newcastle United v Chelsea live stream, Sky Sports, Saturday 30 October, 3pm
Chelsea will be looking to maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League table when they face Newcastle on Saturday.
The Blues demolished Norwich 7-0 last time out, despite being without their two main attackers in Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner. It was important for Thomas Tuchel’s side to record a statement victory following their somewhat fortuitous 1-0 win against Brentford the previous week. Chelsea will be hoping for another comfortable afternoon when they head to St James’ Park on Saturday.
With Werner and Lukaku still missing, we will probably see Kai Havertz as a false nine once more. Mason Mount, the hat-trick hero last weekend, will hope to get on the scoresheet once again, but Ross Barkley, Saul Niguez and Hakim Ziyech will probably drop out of the starting XI after featuring in the League Cup game against Southampton.
Tuchel expects to have N’Golo Kante available for selection, but the Frenchman might begin this game on the bench. Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will all need to be assessed, but this game will probably come too soon for Christian Pulisic.
Newcastle were slightly more solid in their 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace last weekend, but they should really have lost that match on the balance of play. Graeme Jones will have been working hard with the players on the training pitch this week, but a meeting with the European champions is unlikely to yield a positive result. The interim boss is at least benefiting from a fully-fit Callum Wilson, who scored a fine equaliser at Selhurst Park last time out.
Newcastle have Jonjo Shelvey available again following suspension, but the midfielder might have to make do with a place on the bench. Martin Dubravka and Paul Dummett are missing through injury, but Freddie Woodman could be back on the bench following a muscular problem.
Kick-off is at 3pm BST on Saturday 30 October. 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.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
