You don't need a crystal ball to predict the outcome of the Newcastle United vs Chelsea live stream: anything other than a victory for the away side would be a shock.

That's because Chelsea are top of the table after a commanding victory over Norwich, while Newcastle United are winless and look unlikely to be playing Premier League football next season unless things change fast. 

Newcastle are almost certainly coming into this game in damage limitation mode. A defeat here could see the side end the day at the foot of the table, and they will be keen to avoid complete humiliation against the reigning champions of Europe.  

While the club's new owners continue to search for a permanent manager, assistant coach Graeme Jones will again take charge of this match. His first match at the helm came last weekend against Crystal Palace, with the Magpies managing to claim a point. 

In truth, the performance in the capital was poor and Newcastle probably should have lost by two or three goals but Crystal Palace were wasteful with their many chances. Chelsea won't make the same mistake; they will mercilessly punish any errors and Newcastle's defense makes an awful lot of them. 

Chelsea proved how ruthless they can be against Norwich, putting the Canaries to the sword in a 7-0 drubbing. Thomas Tuchel's side will be licking their lips at the prospect of playing another relegation-threatened team, especially one that is yet to keep a clean sheet so far this season. 

You wouldn't know it looking at their results, but Chelsea are actually suffering something of an injury crisis. Both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner were sidelined against Norwich and neither plays here. Cesar Azpilicueta and Ruben Loftus-Cheek had also suffered injuries, although both are on the bench here. Surprisingly, Mason Mount — who scored a hat-trick in that win over Norwich — is also missing.

Here's how they line up:

Newcastle United: Darlow, Clark, Lascelles, Krafth, Ritchie, S Longstaff, Hayden, Manquillo, Saint-Maximin, Fraser, Wilson.

Chelsea: Mendy, Christensen, Silva, Rudiger, James, Jorginho, Kante, Chilwell, Ziyech, Hudson-Odoi, Havertz.
