Team news: Joelinton replaces Wilson up front
Joelinton returns to Newcastle United’s starting XI and leads the line as the Magpies take on Chelsea at St. James’ Park.
The Brazilian frontman replaces Callum Wilson up top, with United’s leading goalscorer failing a late fitness test after hobbling out of their last game, at Southampton a fortnight ago, with a hamstring injury.
Manquillo starts at right wing back, with Jacob Murphy pushing further forward to compensate for the absence of Miguel Almirón, who only returned from international duty with Paraguay late on Thursday night.
Clark, meanwhile, starts for the first time since September’s thumping Carabao Cup victory at Morecambe.
