Timo Werner missed Chelsea’s win at Barnsley with a dead leg but should be fit, while Andreas Christensen may play despite being forced off at Oakwell because of a headache. Kai Havertz is doubtful with an unspecified minor injury, while this game comes too soon for Thiago Silva.

Callum Wilson, Fabian Schar and Javier Manquillo could all be out for up to eight weeks after being injured during Newcastle’s win against Southampton. Jeff Hendrick serves a one-match ban.  Ciaran Clark is available after missing the Saints game because his partner had gone into labour, while fellow defenders Jamaal Lascelles and Federico Fernandez will be assessed as they close in on returns from muscle problems.
