Why Newcastle United vs Chelsea is not on TV and how to follow Premier League clash


Chelsea are finally set to return to Premier League action following the two-week international break as they travel up to St. James' Park to face Newcastle United for the first of two clashes in the span of three weeks.

Mauricio Pochettino's men had made great strides before the two-week pause in the season, with a 4-1 win over Tottenham and a 4-4 draw against league leaders and reigning champions Manchester City in back-to-back games the two highlights of the season so far.

Cole Palmer is the name on everyone's lips at the moment as the youngster, who only arrived at Stamford Bridge at the start of September, has taken the Blues dressing room by the scruff of the neck and produced some of the most exciting football supporters have been privy to for a long while.

However, they could be without a few of their key stars. Both Malo Gusto and Levi Colwill were forced to withdraw from their respective international duties due to injury problems but summer signings Christopher Nkunku and Romeo Lavia are both on their way to being fit and healthy to make their debuts in the near future.

Their injury issues don't even come close to what Eddie Howe's Magpies are dealing with though, as they're missing 13 players for the clash on Saturday afternoon. On top of Sandro Tonali's ten-month gambling ban, injuries to key stars like Miguel Almiron, Fabian Schar, Alexander Isak, Callum Wilson and Sven Botman are leaving the Toon battered and bruised heading into the contest.

With that being said, football.london is bringing you all the information you need to know on how to follow the contest.
