Maurizio Sarri appears to be enjoying life at Stamford Bridge. The Italian has seen his Chelsea team beat Huddersfield and Arsenal using the attacking style of football with which Napoli became synonymous last season.

The Blues were 2-0 up against Arsenal last week before the Gunners came back to level at half-time, although it’s questionable whether Newcastle are capable of a similar style of comeback should their opponents come out of the traps flying.

Chelsea are yet to feature Eden Hazard from the start, with N’Golo Kante pushing forward alongside Pedro and Willian, while Ross Barkley has also been featuring heavily after becoming the forgotten man.

Marcos Alonso might technically be playing at left-back although he’s getting forward relentlessly and the visitors won’t be hanging around when it comes to getting a foothold in the game.

Rafael Benitez will look to his team to soak up pressure and try to land a tight victory as the Magpies did when beating Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea last season.

Newcastle are decent at home and ran Tottenham close in their opener but it might be difficult to contain a rampant side, especially if Hazard is back into the fold.
