NEW Vs CHE Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Pieces falling together in place at Chelsea as the side look to be completing their puzzle with each passing win.
This Chelsea side needed time to move in unison and justify the club breaking the bank prior to the season but the London based club is slowly taking on the shape the club’s ardent supporters had in their mind.
Whilst the club is far from the finished product, things are finally moving in the right direction for the side. Unbeaten in their last five fixtures in the league, a run which included two wins on the bounce, Chelsea is starting to show signs of the juggernaut it has the capability to conjuring into this season.
Given the extradonaire form the club had hit, the team would have rued the two week hiatus, one which stalled their sensational uptick in the points tally. And with the club taking on a Newcastle United side which has traditionally proved to be a monkey on the side’s back, Chelsea know they can’t treat today’s encounter easily.
NEW Vs CHE Fantasy Probable Winner
While Newcastle United are bound to make life cumbersome for Chelsea as they revert to their customary brand of defensive football at home against clubs from the top 6, Chelsea should managed to overpower them today.

The fact that Newcastle United haven’t felt the brunt of Martin’s injury till now is a massive testament to Karl Darlow’s sprawling skill set. He’s not only taken over the role of the club’s main goal-keeper but has kept almost everything out to make him an instant pick for us today.
From being a defensive unit which was quashed and ripped into shreds by almost anyone to now conceding just four times in their last five outings including three cleansheets in that time, Chelsea have truly shunned their horrendous form at the back.
New signing Thiago Silva has played a massive hand in turning things around for Chelsea with him coming across as a calming presence in the side’s backline. He’s also allowed Kurt Zouma to settle in nicely to see him the CB score twice for the club this season.
Reece James is finally living upto his potential with an extended stay in Chelsea’s playing 11 offering him the chance to express himself freely. Frederico Fernandez is our pick from the opposition with him clobbering attacking plays with a string of tackles and blocks.
Hakim Ziyech’s exceptional influence on Chelsea’s attacking play can’t be understated. Despite only featuring in two matches for the side, he has already contributed to four goals with him registering two assists the last time around.
Mason Mount with the one goal makes a foray into our side as well with the resolute and gusty N’Golo Kante completing the set of picks from the side. Newcastle United meanwhile will see us opt for Jeff Hendrick who has the one goal and assist to his name.
Despite being devoid of assistance from his counterparts, Callum Wilson has not been dissuaded. He’s his side’s top scorer with the six strikes, goals which make him a must have pick for us.
In the form of his life, Timo Werner struck twice for Germany during the internationals fixtures as well to see the Chelsea man close out proceedings for us today.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Werner’s goal against Sheffield United makes him our side’s captain with Ziyech being the vice-captain.
Darlow, James, Fernandez, Silva, Zouma, Mount, Hendrick, Ziyech, Kante, Werner, Wilson
