Chelsea vs Newcastle: Kick-Off Time, Date, Venue and Team News

According to Standard, Chelsea is set to face Newcastle in the Premier League on Monday, with Mauricio Pochettino aiming to shift the tide of fan sentiment.

The Blues manager acknowledged a lack of “love” from supporters after the disappointing 2-2 draw with Brentford, marked by audible chants for the return of Jose Mourinho. Despite the challenging atmosphere, Pochettino remains determined to convince Chelsea fans that he is the right person for the job.

The match is scheduled for an 9 pm GMT kick-off on Monday, March 11, 2024, and will take place at Stamford Bridge in London.

Chelsea continues to grapple with the absence of key players, including Christopher Nkunku, Romeo Lavia, and Reece James. Thiago Silva and Marc Cucurella are available, and Raheem Sterling is a potential inclusion in the starting lineup.

Newcastle faces several player absences, including Nick Pope, Sandro Tonali, Callum Wilson, Matt Targett, and Joelinton. Kieran Trippier’s injury against Wolves rules him out of this fixture, potentially providing Tino Livramento with a rare start at right-back. Lewis Hall is ineligible against his parent club, while Miguel Almiron may replace Jacob Murphy at right-wing. Alexander Isak, Elliot Anderson, and Joe Willock are all fit and available.
