Midfielders: Kante, Kovacic, Mount
The big boost for Lampard heading into this weekend was having Kai Havertz back available again.
The Germany international missed Chelsea’s last two games following a positive coronavirus test.
But Chelsea’s official website lists Havertz still as doubtful for starting against Newcastle, suggesting Mateo Kovacic could start in his place.
Both Mason Mount and N’Golo Kante returned from international duty unscathed and are likely to hold on to their positions alongside Havertz.
