Newcastle United are looking to become only the second side to beat Premier League leaders Chelsea in domestic action this term when Thomas Tuchel's team head to a sold-out St. James' Park on Saturday (kick-off 3pm BST).

But while that seems a daunting task, there were promising signs from the Magpies at Crystal Palace last time out and interim boss Graeme Jones has Jonjo Shelvey back from suspension, with the midfielder playing 90 minutes for United's under-23s on Monday - at his own request - to aid his match sharpness. 

The Blues are likely to be without Romelu Lukaku - whose threat is well known to Jones after the pair worked together with the Belgian national team - and Timo Werner, although Christian Pulisic could return from an ankle injury.

Goalkeeper Karl Darlow is likely to have to be at his best if the Magpies are to repeat their 1-0 win in this fixture in January 2020, but the Newcastle netminder told NUFC TV this week that he believes United are ready for the challenge.
