Newcastle United hope to return to winning ways as they host Chelsea on Saturday.

A two-week break for internationals comes to an end with the return of the Premier League, with this the early fixture which could see the away side move top of the table temporarily.

Frank Lampard will hope the break has given some of his injured players a chance to overcome a few knocks, pending the usual coronavirus tests after some return from internationals.

Chelsea are 11 unbeaten in all competitions, with three wins from their last five league games.
