NEW Vs CHE Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Chelsea strive to imbed in place a winning spree as the club aim to hammer down a place in the top 4.
Struck by inconsistencies over the course of the last month, Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Burnley the last time around was a much needed one. It not only gave the side much needed confidence but also saw them consolidate their spot in fourth place with a five point lead separating them from their challengers.
What will especially please the side is the rampant manner in which that result came about. The 3-0 win over Burnley was as comprehensive a performance as they get, a tie which could have seen the side hammer in as many goals as they wanted to put past their opponents in the 90 minutes.
It’s a result which they’ll be looking to emanate come today’s upcoming outing against Newcastle United, a club who at the moment look extremely easy to be rolled over. The 1-1 draw to Wolverhampton the last time around was the side’s fourth encounter without a win to their name, a side which Chelsea will be looking to leave flummoxed at the end of the day.
Although Newcastle United have hit a rut at the moment with their lacklustre displays, there is no hiding away the fact that Chelsea have struggled to punch above their weight infront of lower placed sides. It’s something Newcastle United will be looking to capitalise on but Chelsea’s attacking impetuous should guide the side through to the three points on the day.

NEW Vs CHE Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Ever since making his move to the club, Martin Dubravka has immediately endeared himself to the side’s supporters. It’s down to his calibre as a goal-keeper, one which has seen him act as the unit’s custodian in goal, a player who we envision parrying away a plethora of shots today to see us make him our pick.
NEW Vs CHE Dream11 Defenders
He was recently handed over a new 5 year extension at the club, one doled out to Reece James owing to the mark he’s left on the side this season. The fullback came up with an assist the last time around, one which exemplified the threat he bears in the attacking sorties to make the player an instant pick for the day.
His captain, Cesar Azpilicueta will be assisting him for the upcoming outing with the player showing why he’s been such a valuable part of Chelsea’s squad over the years. The defender has been solid as ever in defence of late, overhauling an underachieving start to the season, something which paired with his affinity to torch down the park makes him a must have proposition.
Elsewhere, with Willems out injured for the side, Emil Krafth will once again be deployed in the wingback position, a role which will make him a solid pick for the day.
NEW Vs CHE Dream11 Midfielders
Callum Hodson-Odoi has ended up getting much yearned opportunities in Chelsea’s side owing to Pulisic’s injury and with a goal the last time around, he’s set to play again today. We’ll e making him our first pick from the unit alongside Jorginho who sent home Chelsea’s penalty against Burnley.
Mason Mount has seen the goals dry up for him recently but with the player being the furthest moving midfielder for Chelsea along with holding a role in corners and freekicks, we are getting him in as well from the side to wrap up our trio. Elsewhere, we have just the one player coming in from the opposition in the form of Miguel Almiron.
He’s scored in three successive encounters now prior to today’s match, numbers which along with the 2 assists he’s raked up make him someone to have for the day.
NEW Vs CHE Dream11 Strikers
Chelsea’s leading goal scorer with the 13 goals and 3 assists, Tammy Abraham will be the first name to blind a place in our side for the encounter. Willian comes in from the team as well given his ability to be involved in either atleast the one goal or assist while from the other side of the slot, two goal man Joelinton brings an end to our set of picks.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have Azpilicueta come in as our captain with Abraham being the vice-captain.
