Salah Set for Debut – Chelsea's Probable XI vs Newcastle

Salah ChelseaChelsea did what nobody else could as they handed Manchester City their first defeat of the season at the Etihad Stadium.
Not only that, City have been scoring for fun this season and Blues made sure that they did not even score one in their own backyard. That has happened for the first time since November 2010.
Jose Mourinho’s men will be upbeat for the upcoming fixture against Newcastle United and will look to maintain their winning run.
If Arsenal drop points at Anfield in Saturday’s early kickoff then three points can take Chelsea top of the table.
The magpies defeated Chelsea when the two sides met earlier at St. James’ Park but Alan Pardew’s men are not in that top form anymore.
Having lost the player who used to make them tick, Cabaye, they are very weak. A horrific derby loss against Sunderland was painful and it looks likely that Chelsea will pile more misery on the visitors.
As far as Chelsea’s team news is concerned, Mourinho shifted his side for City’s game but will not need much compact approach against the Magpies.
Brazilian Oscar is expected to return to the starting line up while Ramires may be shifted to central midfield in place of compatriot Luis to start alongside Matic.
New winter signing, Mohamed Salah is expected to make his debut for the Blues and may as well do that by starting the game in place of Willian on the right.
Here is Chelsea’s probable XI vs Newcastle.
