Frank Lampard has named his lineup to face Newcastle, and Ross Barkley comes into the starting team in place of the injured N’Golo Kante.

Chelsea starting XI: Kepa; Azpilicueta (c), Zouma, Tomori, Alonso; Barkley, Jorginho, Mount; Willian, Abraham, Hudson-Odoi.

Substitutes: Caballero, James, Guehi, Kovacic, Pulisic, Batshuayi, Giroud.

Newcastle starting XI: Dubravka; Yedlin, Schar, Lascelles (c), Clark, Willems; Almiron, M Longstaff, S Longstaff, Saint-Maximin; Joelinton.

Substitutes: Darlow, Dummett, Krafth, Shelvey, Atsu, Carroll, Gayle.
